“The Sisiutl plays the role of balance. I have used it in this show as displaying the balance between spirit and the modern day. As forms shift and transform into the contemporary, it’s the stories that hold the art to be true. We can play in this contemporary world in all aspects, but always must remember where and what grounds us.” — Rande Cook
