Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia. We are proud to announce that the book The Transforming Image by MOA curators Bill McLennan and Karen Duffek has made the top 25 list of American Indian Art magazine’s most influential books on Native American Art published over the last four decades. Below is the excerpt from the magazine.
Struck by the dynamic character of a 19th-century Northwest Coast painted chest that he had walked past many times at the museum where he worked, Bill McLennan decided to photograph it for closer study. Infrared film produced surprising results. Painted areas that had been obscured with a patina of oils and soot could now be clearly seen, as the complete painting emerged from beneath the weathered surface.
The Transforming Image book. The story of Northwest Coast painting is continuous and unfolding. All who have seen the results so far agree that. It begins with the emergence of the painted line on cedar and skin: the first brushstrokes of an expressive tradition thousands of years in the making. Like the painted images themselves, this story has been shaped by the hands of generations of painters and by the forces of history. Its forms speak of space and balance, of tension and release.

An analytical study of First Nations painted objects from the Northwest Coast showed that green earth (celadonite) was used as a green pigment by Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian artists. Green earth appears to have been used less frequently by Heiltsuk and Kwakwaka’wakw artists and was not found on Coast Salish or Nuu-chah-nulth objects. Eight contributors provide essays on Coast Salish art and carving, adding to the author’s portrayal of Joe’s philosophy of art in Salish life, particularly in the context of twentieth century intercultural relations.

Coined by Bill Holm in his 1965 book Northwest Coast Indian Art: An Analysis of Form, the "formline is the primary design element on which Northwest Coast art depends, and by the turn of the 20th century, its use spread to the southern regions as well. It is the positive delineating force of the painting, relief and engraving. Formlines are continuous, flowing, curvilinear lines that turn, swell and diminish in a prescribed manner. They are used for figure outlines, internal design elements and in abstract compositions.
The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) campus in Vancouver, British Columbia . Walter and Marianne Koerner's 1975 donation of their extensive collection of Northwest Coast First Nations art to the museum formed a large part of the building's contents.
The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) campus in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is renowned for its displays of world arts and cultures, in particular works by First Nation band governments of the Pacific Northwest. In 1997, Ruth Phillips became museum director. In 2002, Ames returned as acting director.
The Transforming Image arose from the need of current generations to gain access to the creative achievements of their ancestors and to build on the cultural knowledge that the old paintings could reveal.
