The Dreamer
17 h X 8 w X deep
He is a commercial manikin bust in smooth high-gloss red resin covered in hand-painted formline design representing his native/non-native ancestry.  His ochre-yellow swirls - a kind of comb-over - and design details indicate his part-Euro parentage which is characteristic of many otherwise indigenous or First Nations people on the Northwest Coast and throughout North America.  His eyes, covered in slabs of firmly attached abalone shell, represent a state of trance in which he dreams an emerging world. $1200
