Steve Smith – Dla’kwagila

Red cedar, paint
14” x 8” x 3”


Despite the contemporary flavor of Steve’s paintings, his connection to nature and the spiritual world remains a vital component of his work. A deep foundation in trust, love and community is at the core of his creations.

Steve spent the last three years experimenting with characters, color and structure against a backdrop that is loyal to the primary principles of Northwest Coast formline and design. His desire to explore a variety of moods and perspectives while remaining true to his unique style has allowed him to play with the concepts of strength and balance.

The resulting works are surprisingly fresh and widely lauded.
