To Whom It May Concern;

I came to know Ugo Matulic, also known as Spirit Walker on his internet website, in 2007 as my co-worker on an industrial construction project in southern Alberta. While Ugo’s profession may be piping design, it did not take long before I realized that his true passion is the arts. Ugo has a true appreciation and enthusiasm for artwork, and in particular, the artwork of Norval Morrisseau.

As a co-worker and friend, Ugo has spent a great deal of time explaining to me the depth and complexity of Morriseau’s art: the messages behind the paintings; the intricacies of the brush strokes; the life of the artist and its visual effect on the art; the cultural significance of the artwork to the Ojibway peoples and to the people of Canada.

There are very few people in this world that exhibit a passion for the arts as Ugo Matulic does for the artwork of Morrisseau. While Ugo has amassed a sizeable personal collection of the artwork, his true passion is not obtaining artwork, but rather educating the public on the brilliance of this iconic Canadian painter. Ugo began his intenet blog on Norval Morriseau in 2007 when we first met, and considering the tireless late night hours he invested into this website while still performing his daytime profession; it became very apparent to me that Ugo’s passion is to showcase and educate the public on Morriseau’s artwork. The number (and quality) of posts that Ugo has posted on his website is indicative of the appreciation, and personal knowledge and understanding that Ugo has for the artwork.

It should further be stated that Ugo’s fervour for promoting the work of Morriseau has never been for financial gain. In all the hours I have spent discussing the artwork with Ugo, never once has the topic of finance entered into the conversation. Nor have I ever felt pressure to purchase artwork from Ugo. Our conversations have always been limited to the beauty and significance of the artwork. I consider him a purist admirer of Morriseau’s work.

I am a Canadian, bred and born, who had never been educated on the cultural gem that is Norval Morrisseau until I met my Croatian friend Ugo. What a shame that as a Canadian I was previously oblivious to this prolific artwork. I am grateful for my friendship to Ugo; in that he opened my eyes to such a Canadian treasure.

Norval Morrisseau Erotica (Part XIV)

"Untitled"© 1982 Norval Morrisseau
/Click on image to Enlarge/

"As far as sex was concerned. I did everything under the sun. In those days I was a very sexually oriented person. But things change, things develop, and everything sooner or later dies. There are some things that grow, and you constantly have to sort out your thoughts and ideas."

Norval Morrisseau, 1979

"Erotica has always been an important aspect of Norval Morrisseau's art. To write about his creative opus without inclusion of erotica would make this Blog incomplete."

Artist Ross awarded Order of Canada: Documented images from Big Trout Lake, Sandy Lake

Originally published on Thursday October 3, 2002 @ 

While she was in Northwestern Ontario, Governor General Adrienne Clarkson presented the prestigious Order of Canada to artist Susan Ross.

~ This award, established in Canada's Centennial Year, 1967, recognizes outstanding achievement and service.

Ross is well known for her paintings, etchings, and prints of First Nations people.

In the 1960s, she was encouraged by Norval Morrisseau to paint the residents and scenes of our part of the world.

She also ventured to the Far North and showed the rest of the country images of the strong Inuit people.

Many pieces of her work grace the halls at Confederation College in Thunder Bay.

Having already painted for many years, Ross became interested in people in relationship to the land.

When she met Emily, an Ojibway woman, she was introduced to a culture that intrigued her.

She began to understand the culture by learning some of the language.

Then she became fascinated by the Native wild-rice harvesters at Whitefish Lake.

After meeting Norval Morrisseau, she ventured north to reserve communities to learn more about Native culture and to sketch the people.

Morrisseau encouraged her to sketch scenes from daily life at Gull Bay.

Ross and Morrisseau respected each other as artists and maintained a friendship for several years.

In her travels, Ross visited and documented images from Big Trout Lake, Sandy Lake, north of the Arctic Circle, and more.

The 1960s and '70s were a difficult time for Aboriginal people of Northwestern Ontario and the Far North.

Ross's images often show stress in the faces of those she sketched and the hard work they endured in their daily lives.

But pleasure also shows through in some of her images, such as "Saulteaux Drum Dance" and "Inuit Girls."

The faces are always intelligent and questioning.

In her comments while issuing the Order of Canada, Gov. Gen. Clarkson noted that Ross has served as a mentor, a source of encouragement, and a source of financial assistance to numerous artists.

As well as Morrisseau, Ross was also influential in the careers of Carl Ray and Daphne Odjig, whose first public exhibition was mounted by Ross in 1967.

Now 87 years old, Ross no longer paints.

"I lost the urge to do it in the last couple of years," she said.

A Separate Reality: Norval Morrisseau

Director/producer: Paul Carvalho

© Perception Films

This is the story of one of the most celebrated, most original and most notorious artist in Canadian history. Norval Morrisseau, an aboriginal from the Ojibwa tribe, taught himself to draw and paint in the 1950’s so as to give visual expression to his grandfather’s shamanistic dreams. His works received instant national acclaim when first exhibited in Toronto in 1962. But what unfolded was a tragic and sometimes bizarre personal life that mixed intentional homelessness, public alcoholism and even an entanglement with the Mafia. Yet Morrisseau still managed to become the country’s most collected painter, with some 800 canvasses held by public galleries and to invent a painting style, subsequently called the Woodland school that has become an important form of expression for many native artists in North America.

This is the first-ever one-hour documentary about the life of Norval Morrisseau. It has privileged access to Morrisseau’ s adoptive son, Gabor Vadas, to his biological son David Morrisseau and to the artist himself in the final days of his life. The film mixes 1960’s black-and-white footage with romantic, vibrantly-colored recreations and gritty experimental camera work on the streets of Vancouver to create a startlingly intimate portrait of a consummate rebel and an artistic giant who single-handedly attempted to preserve the powerful symbolism of a North American culture Morrisseau calls, with unwavering pride, “The Great Ojibwa.”

The filmmaker discovers that what lies at the root of Morrisseau’s self-destruction is his sexual abuse by priests at a Catholic boarding school in the early 1940’s. Countless other native children suffered similar abuse in other Canadian boarding schools. Morrisseau’s story conveys the extent of the psychological and spiritual damage inflicted by the dominant culture, but he also symbolizes one man’s triumph through the power of visionary art.

Exhibition 'Southern Cross Greets the North Star' @ Gallery 577 ends TODAY


"Meditation", © 2008 Frank Polson
/Click on image to Enlarge/


Gallery 577 is honoured to host this significant exhibition, curated by Indigenous Art specialist Peter Los; Southern Cross Greets the North Star.

As the world continues to evolve into a global village, cultural exchanges between indigenous citizens become important as they represent a different style of management of the planet and in time this ideology will be taken more seriously. ‐ Peter Los, June 2011

Peter Los has brought together the work of Indigenous artists from Australia and Canada for the second time in a series of educational forums aimed at admirers of Indigenous art. The first ground‐breaking exhibition, North Star Greets the Southern Cross, was hosted by Timber Village Museum in Blind River, Ontario in July 2010. It is a unique concept to draw parallels between the philosophies and art practices of different Aboriginal cultures, providing a fresh look at ancient legend and its relevance to the contemporary world.

This exhibition showcases works from Woodlands Artists of Northern Ontario and Desert Artists from the Northern Territory. What ties these artists together is a shared passion to communicate the legends passed down to them through their Aboriginal heritage. Art has always been an important element in the tradition of transferring knowledge to the next generations. As custodians, it is an obligation to ensure their knowledge continues. The complex legends, rituals and stories of Aboriginal cultures are mostly inaccessible to the general Western population. What drives these contemporary Indigenous artists to break traditional codes of silence, is a need share their heritage and educate the rest of the world to the needs of this planet. In Aboriginal art, the image is key to the knowledge it represents.

Peter holds a unique position within the international Indigenous Art world. His appreciation for Canadian Aboriginal Art developed while growing up in the Great Lakes region of Northern Ontario, Canada. Then, as an adult, working as a geologist in the deserts of Western Australia, Peter found himself on the frontline of the Australian Aboriginal Art movement. Between Northern Ontario and the Northern Territory, Peter forged strong relationships with many artists now heralded as some of the greatest. These relationships have remained. This series of exhibitions is the culmination of a career devoted to these artists and the promotion of Aboriginal art.

On display will be early works from artists that rose to the top of the Woodlands School of Canadian Indigenous Art, centred on the artists colony of Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron. John Laford, Leland Bell, Conrad Bobiwash and James Simon Mishinibinjima will hang alongside Australian Western Desert artists such as Paddy Fordham, Dick Yuna and Mickey Hall. We are privileged to have Canadian Trade Commissioner Ellen Ruth Zeisler open the exhibition. Gallery 577 invites you to be a part of a unique cultural experience.

Honouring Leland Bell


"Seven Grandfathers", © Leland Bell BEBAMINOJMAT
/Click on image to Enlarge/

Leland Bell was born in 1953 at Wikwemikong Unceded First Nation on Manitoulin Island, Ontario (Note: the name Wikwemikong means "bay of beavers"); he was raised there and in Toronto and graduated from Laurentian University in Sudbury where he majored in Native Studies. His spirit name is Bebaminojmat, he is of the Loon Clan, and is a “second degree” member of the Three Fires Midewiwin society. An Ojibwa-Odawa, Bell prefers to identify himself as an Anishinabe, an Ojibwa word for North America meaning literally “from whence man was lowered”. He “firmly believes in the notion that Anishinabe culture contains all the necessary paradigms of knowledge to nurture the survival of the Anishinabe people". As an artist, he believes that the way that “colours, lines, shapes and compositions are perceived” can be understood in the context of that culture.-

Leland Bell's wonderful paintings frequently use stylized human figures sharing the affinity of family or friends, often depicting imagery of nurturing, sharing, learning, peace and serenity.

He was influenced in his youth through teachings, ceremonies, and art instruction at Cultural Arts Camps on Manitoulin Island, and it was there that his distinctive style first emerged. Leland has been painting professionally since 1976 and in addition to his painting devotes much of his creative energy to writing and music. He has collaborated often with Shirley Chee Choo and and her husband Blake Debassige on writing music for Shirley’s film projects.

Bell has been part of Group Exhibitions in Ontario, British Columbia and Switzerland. He has had, literally, dozens of commissions, chiefly from organizations in Ontario.

"My art comes from the Three Fires (or Midewiwin) tradition. That is what I believe in. I came to this belief through a dream I had about peace. It was a deeply spiritual experience. After consulting with Elders I began trying to build my sense of spirituality. Then I needed to have an Indian name. I consulted with some elders and asked them to help me find my name. I was given the name Bebaminojmat which, loosely translated, means, 'when you go around you talk about good things'. Then I fasted to prepare my body and my mind to talk to the Creator. This is where my art comes from.

"The circle is central to our tradition. The Creator sits in the East. Yellow is the colour for that direction; the sacred herb is tobacco; the animal is the eagle. Red is the colour of the South which is the place of all young life, of the little animals; the sacred plant is cedar. The West is the place of life; it's colour is black and the sacred medicine is sage. All the healing powers come from the North; its colour is white; sweetgrass comes from there; and that is where the sacred bear sits."The Circle is what my paintings are based on. The rounded lines are deliberate ... what I create is something simple and serene and peaceful."

Thunder Bay's Norval Morrisseau vs. Jack Pollock's Norval Morrisseau (Part X)

~ Exclusive Report ~

>>> NORVAL MORRISSEAU BLOG & the Legacy of Norval Morrisseau continues...

"Untitled" [Self Portrait], acrylic on canvas, 45"x28",
© 1971 Norval Morrisseau /Click on image to Enlarge and/or click HERE for the inscription on canvas VERSO/

> The above presented genuine Norval Morrisseau painting was acquired by Ugo Matulić a.k.a. Spirit Walker, Calgary, Alberta from Mr. Mich Barnes of 'Red Kettle Art Gallery', Victoria, British Columbia. Who had originally acquired it from the private collection of Mr. Rolf Schneiders, Thunder Bay, Ontario - the same source as paintings that came with Certificates of Authenticity signed by Norval Morrisseau on April 11th, 2002 and previously presented on this platform (click HERE).

IMPORTANT NOTES: To view high resolution images of this painting click on the image above and/or HERE, HERE & HERE. These close-up pictures clearly show Norval Morrisseau's paintbrush and finger application technique on this untitled self portrait dating from 1971. Pay attention to areas which were completed with use of finger(s). These areas are smooth in texture and paintbrush bristle lines are absent. Click HERE to se a "You Tube" video presentation showing Norval Morrisseau's use of his fingers while painting.

> This genuine Norval Morrisseau painting was originally published on page 98 in THE ART OF NORVAL MORRISSEAU ('Jack Pollock's Book') /Lister Sinclair, Jack Pollock, and Norval Morrisseau /ISBN: 0-458-93820-3/Toronto, Ontario: Methuen, 1979./


1) We can clearly see that these paintings "Untitled" (1971) and "First Son of the Ojibway Loon Totemic Clan" (1973) were painted with identical composition and colour combinatons. Norval Morrisseau repeated many times his images and themes with ingeneous variations.

One can see this connection of similar themes and subject matter in the paintings coming out of Thunder Bay, Ontario; with paintings catalogued by Jack Pollock (click HERE to see the similarities in both of these images side by side).

2) Many of the paintings presented in 'Nimkee Art Gallery' , M'chigeeng, Manitoulin Island, Ontario (click HERE) were acquired directly from Mr. Rolf Schneider's Private Collection (Thunder Bay, Ontario). Many paintings currently exhibited on Mr. Gary Lamont's website at were also acquired from Mr. Schneider's Private Collection.

3) The Thunder Bay Art Gallery holds many art pieces from the Helen E. Bend Collection who had received in 2002 a donation of an oil painting on natural birch bark titled 'After Spirit of the Fourth' (Item: 02.3.1) > 24.8 cm x 26.2 cm > 1958 which was directly donated from Mr. Rolf Schnieder's Private Collection.

Mr. Joseph Otavnik Family donated four paintings in 2004 to the same institution:

1) 'Untitled' [animal spirits facing inward] (Item: 04.7.1) > 73 cm x 56 cm > 1970; 2) 'Untitled' [two shaman and animal spirits in cameo] (Item: 04.7.2) > 72 cm x 85 cm > 1979; 3) Lake Trout with Eggs (Item: 04.7.3) > 114 cm x 80 cm > 1973 & 4) 'Untitled' [fish with minnows] (Item: 04.7.4) > 73 cm x 50 cm > 1976.

All of these paintings have been declared authentic by Mr. Glenn Allison* - Curator of The Thunder Bay Art Gallery - (RETIRED on December 31st, 2009).
