Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun, Preliminary Study, Burying Another Face of Racism

Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun, Preliminary Study, Burying Another Face of Racism (1997), graphite on paper [Museum of Anthropology, Vancouver BC, May 10-Oct 16]

With paintings titled Red Man Watching White Man Trying to Fix a Hole in the Sky (1990) and Killer Whale Has a Vision and Comes to Talk to Me About Proximological Encroachments of Civilizations in the Oceans (2010), one could safely infer that Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun cares deeply about the planet. He does. But in his concern for the planet, he has not lost his sense of humour.

Of Cowichan Salish and Okanagan descent, and with an exhibition that spans over 30 years of work, Yuxweluptun is arguably Vancouver’s most consequential living painter. Since his 1983 graduation from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, he has produced a number of canvasses that travel between figuration and abstraction, depicting, for example, ovoids both as hard edge forms over molten monochromatic fields and as anatomical components used in the creation of spirits and human beings.

Despite the many art historical styles and genres Yuxweluptun employs, he continues to hone his technical skills in each approach, as evidenced by brushwork in paintings like Natives Playing on the Land (2015), where trees are modeled with the same shivering intensity as the shifting skies. A similar attention to brushwork is visible in the business suits of his most recent Super Predators series.
