Gigaemi Kukwits

Gigamei Kukwits paintings move well beyond the formline of Northwest Coast design elements, and describe a complex physical and metaphysical universe. Unified frameworks play essential and complementary roles in the advancement of queries into the nature of space and time, and metaphysical outlooks. A deep questioning of the concept of a privileged present moment runs deep in rich colour washes that invoke both forward, and backward movements in space and time.

Gigaemi was born in 1945. His name was appointed in a Cedar Bark ceremony, and derives from his grandparents of the Tse wa daen uk and Mus gamma nations. He studied at the Vancouver School of Art (Emily Carr University of Art & Design) in 1967. He lives and works in Vancouver, B.C.
