Fotoeins Friday: “Fusion,” by Susan Point

A Coast Salish artist from Musqueam First Nation in Vancouver, Susan Point is highly acclaimed, both nationally and internationally. About her sculpture Point writes (City of Vancouver):

“Fusion” is an artwork that marries mediums and cultures … as well as legends. It also, metaphorically, fuses natural imagery with modern methods. The sculpture is contemporary yet unmistakably Salish. As this development sits in traditional Musqueam territory and is close to the banks of the Fraser River, my conceptual art piece is based on the theme of “people of the Grass” as well as the “Salmon People” which is uniquely Musqueam. The human element within the salmon has universal appeal that symbolically relates to all peoples. The faces are revealed with traditional Salish elements. Overall, the forms represent a living thriving culture and our historical legacy; as well as this unique community today … giving a sense of place and a landmark that respects the past, present and future.

I made the photo above on 5 Dec 2020 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens 18.5/28 prime and the following settings: 1/1000-sec, f/11, and ISO1000. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-kJI.
