We saw this excellent exhibit in Vancouver a few years ago...what's the artist's name again? It's on the tip of my tongue. Did this exhibit include his figurines as well? I really liked the ones of John Diefenbaker (there's a Saskatchewan reference for you!)
@alanna:It was Joe Fafard (awesome last name, don't you think?). The gallery owns this piece, so it was the only one on display (i.e. it wasn't a Fafard exhibit). Of all the pieces we saw that day it was my favourite - I would love to see more of his work.
Right, thanks for clearing up my mind fog!His stuff is awesome. I highly recommend going to any exhibits that come your way. :)
