Description

Storyteller: The Art of Roy Henry Vickers is the outstanding coffee-table size book containing 120 colour images including, 118 previously unpublished works. This book celebrates the previous decade 2003-2013 of this renowned painter and printmaker's artwork. A note from the artist accompanies each image, inviting the reader to a deeper understanding of both art and artist. Influenced by his Tsimshian, Haida, Heiltsuk and British heritage, Vickers unites the stylized forms of his Indigenous ancestry with the realism of European art, creating vibrant images that speak to a universal spirit of our ties to the land. His limited edition prints are much sought after works of Northwest Coast art. This volume is highly recommended for secondary school library and public library collections. Highly recommended for the Ontario Native Studies grade 9 Expressing Aboriginal Arts NAC10 course.
