Harrison is a Nisga’a and Tsimshian artist based in British Columbia. Harrison worked with mentor Rande Cook with a focus on painting and carving, and created a carved wooden panel representing the Nisga’a cultural houses for his Scholarship artwork.
Pictures of Northern Life, Harrison’s Scholarship artwork will be uploaded soon.
“Northern Life focuses on the four main Nisga’a houses of the Orca, Eagle, Wolf, and Raven around a salmon egg. The salmon egg is the main focus as it is an important resource to not only the people but the environment as a whole. With the nine colors, red depicting life, having the salmon egg and border red, it shows the connection and flow all life has.”
