Leonard Paul, The Elder, or, The Man Who could Talk to Animals 2005, ink and pencil on illustration board, 40.7 x 33cm, Courtesy of the artist
6 May 2005 – 21 Aug 2005

The Nova Scotian artist Leonard Paul is known for his meticulously realistic nature and wildlife paintings. Since 2003, however, he has been engaged in a new project, a series of ink drawings illustrating the legends of the Miíkmaq. In keeping with ever-evolving aboriginal storytelling tradition, Paulís treatment of his subject matter blends time-honoured stipple technique with an iconography that borrows liberally from contemporary fantasy genres. The series of ten drawings centres on Kluskap, the hero who defeated the forces of chaos to make the world fit for humans.
