Print Method: Giclée
Released: April 2005
There are numerous times in one’s life when one undergoes some sort of transformation. For many, this may come about through graduating from school, changing jobs, or even the death of a loved one. For me, the marriage to my wife, Nicole, and the birth of my daughter, Claire, brought about this “Metamorphosis.”
This design is done in a style reminiscent of the Coast Salish spindle whorl. In the centre is a human figure with outstretched arms. In the arms are the profiles of eagle heads and in the body is another eagle face. If one were to turn the design upside down, two other eagle faces would be evident—a diving eagle and one in the tail. The eagle is one of my family’s primary crests. The upside-down face in the centre symbolizes the spirit of the human.
Surrounding the transforming human/eagle figure are two swans. Trumpeter swans are notable to me for two reasons: they nest in the Comox Valley and they mate for life. The swans in this print represent the transformative people in my little family—Nicole and Claire. They make me a better person.
This print is based on the original "Metamorphosis" which formed the cornerstone on my lessons in serigraphy. It was met with a great deal of success and was used by the Adidas Vancouver International Marathon as their T-shirt logo for 2005.
