"...Norval, with his incredible ability with the formal problems of art (colour-design-space) and his commitment to the world of his people, the great Ojibway, give one the sense of power that only genius provides... It is sufficient to say that in the history of Canadian Painting, few have, and will remain giants. Norval shall."

Jack Pollock (1930-1992)-

Note: Norval Morrisseau's first public exhibition was held at Jack Pollock's gallery (The Pollock Gallery) on September 12, 1962 in Toronto, Ontario. 'Time' magazine (Canadian edition) commented about the event that "Few ex­hibits in Canadian art history have touched off a greater stir."

there are amazing similarities to the pieces that were being sold at gallery 223 in Nanaimo. Do you think that Gabe Vadas himself has been doing these pieces? Just an observation.

Gabe Vadas has been forging paintings for years and he belongs behind bars.

Let's get something straight here: Gabe Vadas and his wife Michele are solely responsible for Norval Morrisseau's health and well-being. The Vadas' have proven themselves to be outstanding caregivers over the years never losing Norval Morrisseau's trust. We applaud them for excelling at this task when others failed.
