In this unprecedented survey, Ian Thom examines the career, working methods and philosophy of 40 active artists, all of whom he has interviewed, and many of whom are breaking new artistic ground, combining new materials and old traditions. This volume covers a wide breadth of artists, media and styles - from Robert Davidson's painting and sculpture to Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas' Haida-Manga. The book is beautifully packaged, with 85 full-colour reproductions of art, most photographed specially for this publication. Contemporary art of the Northwest Coast is an internationally renowned and vibrant tradition, and the work of the profiled artists is sought-after by collectors the world over.
