Allan (Duck) Saulis, Tobique First Nation

"This is inspired by an engraving in a 1627 volume showcasing European voyages by copperplate engravers Theodore de Bry and Sons of Frankfurt. I interpreted a caribou hunt in action on what seems to be a warm beautiful day. This may be the first pollution to hit the shores here at moneskatik."

Allan Saulis, Tobique First Nation, is a multi-talented wolastookew (person of the good river) and resides at nehgwutgook (where the river goes under). Allan is a lifelong artist. He attended The Art Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1997, and worked as a sculpture assistant to world renowned Penobscot artist Tim Nicola. In 2004, he was recognized by the New Brunswick Arts Board as an “Up and Coming Artist” and was asked to juror in 2013. Today, Allan’s art and photography spans around the world, including the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Allan is also a member of the NBFILM COOP and the New Brunswick Baseball Hall of Fame.
