Artist of the moment…..Cherish Alexander

 

One of the youngest emerging artists is Five Nations artist Cherish Alexander. Cherish Alexander has a wonderful gift for capturing expressions and bold designs in her sculpture work. On many masks we see at least two carved faces. I am also struck by the fact that she depicts women, much of the Five Nations Art masks captures the face of a male/ warrior.

Cherish Alexander was born in Terrace, British Columbia in the 1997.

Alexander was inspired to become an artist after taking a class as a high school student that specialized in Northwest Coast Art.

Alexander represents the Gitxsan and the Tsimshian Nations.

Its great to see such a young artist who is inspired by the traditional Northwest Coast art. Her expressions and use of color is remarkable.
