Daniel Tom blends traditional and contemporary ideas and materials. He works with wood, natural materials from the wilderness, salvaged materials and discarded technology, resulting in his series of display weapons entitled “Tribal Connections”. This series honours animals and First Nations tribes and represents powerful statements about the inextricable linkages between humans, animals, and their environment, their struggles and the balance and perspective required for survival. Daniel’s work was recently displayed at the Kamloops Art Gallery.
