Native Landscape

Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun

About The Native Landscape

This Coast Salish/Okanagan gentleman is not shy about expressing his opinion about politically sensitive issues.  His preference for conveying his point of view is matched with superior drawing and painting skills.  What a wonderful combination ! He has something to say and does so beautifully.

Notice that land, cloud and tree scape elements all consist of northwest coast mask imagery---so very Yuxweluptunish.

About the Artist

(Born 1957) This artist resides in Fort St. James British Columbia. He earned his diploma at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver (1984).

Yuxweluptun's paintings make references to shamans and spirit beings, of healing and communion with animals. Some of these are political statements when they denounce clearcuts, rivers, streams and inlets poisoned by uranium mines and pulp mines.

His work is included in three museum exhibitions: Lost Illusions at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 1991; Land, Spirit and Power in 1992 and Indigena at the Canadian Museum of Civilization Hall in Quebec in 1992. A solo exhibition titled Man of Masks took place at the Derek Simpkins Gallery of Tribal Art in Vancouver May 21 - June 14, 1995.

He was the recipient of the Vancouver Institute for the Visual Arts (VIVA) award in 1998.
