The work of award winning aboriginal artist Shawn Hunt displays humour and irony. In paintings currently on display at the Audain Museum in Whistler, he plays with aboriginal mythology.
Below, "Raven steals my light," visually puns on an aboriginal myth shared by west coast nations. It also refers to a book by fellow artist Bill Reid and poet Robert Bringhurst.
Hunt's bird displays its stolen prize: a red plastic lighter dangles from its talons.
