KUNAMOKST - West Coast Mural Mosaic

Gary Whitley


From Twilight to New Dawn

Medium: oil
Panel before
Artist Comments: Over a century ago the impact of European culture suffocated many indigenous cultures and their art. This painting is an attempt to show that impact by the totems in a night scene. The other totem is painted in colors suggesting the current on going emergence of the indigenous west coast art scene. An art genre far too sophisticated and precious to be ignored.
