On the west coast pretty much everyone is touched by Robert Davidson’s work. It’s on the walls, the phone boxes, on T-shirts, jewelry, tattoos, on the protest signs and regalia at the frequent rallies in defense of the increasingly threatened natural world. It’s in the monumental displays that make Vancouver one of the top airports on the planet. 50 years ago that wasn’t the case. Outside of museums there was almost no sign of the advanced cultures that had lived here for millennia. So what happened?
Haida Modern finds out by following Robert Davidson. We see Robert at work in his studio bringing forward the knowledge of the old masters into the 21st century and passing it on to younger generations. It’s a story full of laughter and tears. It’s an amazing story filled with hope and magic and the breathtaking beauty of the natural world Robert’s works spring from.
Haida Gwaii: On The Edge Of The World told the story of the waves of deeds and misdeeds crashing onto the rocks of an island land far away. Haida Modern tracks those waves as they bounce back off her shores.
