Fur Trade - Voyageur by Michael Dumas
  Fur Trade  (2007)
Subject: Voyageur
Dimensions (inches): 16 x 12
Medium: Graphite
Description: The fur trade gave rise to the voyageur, hardened men living hard lives, yet bursting with a joie de vivre, the french love of life. Given to song and story-telling of their exploits on raging rivers and adventures in the heart of a teeming wilderness, these men were most at home when in the bush. In 'Fur Trade' I have attempted to show this duality of strength and casual enjoyment intertwined in such a convincing way that suggests what it would be like to be this man. This is the essence of the piece. Even though great attention has been payed to the various forms, textures, and details, it is the state of 'being' that I wished most to express.
