Mark Seabrook

Mark Seabrook is a gifted Ojibwe artist; born to both Bird Clan and Fish Clan, birds and fish feature prominently in many of his paintings.  The birds, often ravens, sit silent and bear witness or carry messages to the figures that live within his works.  He was adopted by a non-native couple and grew up surrounded by the natural beauty of Manitoulin Island.  He paints wherever he is, filling his canvases with bright blocks of acrylic colours layered later with more subtle care. His style is strongly reminiscent of Norval Morriseau, - one of his sources of inspiration.  His work often reflects a life that bridges the rural and the urban - the primitive and the urbane - Mark has a gift for depicting aspects of aboriginal culture and spirituality that extend beyond common stereotypes. To support his art, Mark works weekdays as a public school teacher in a remote northern reserve that lacks many modern amenities including power lines, cable television, and reliable Internet access. He originally chose teaching to share his love of art with children and now teaches all subjects with the same passion. When he isn't teaching, painting, or writing, he wanders through the countryside of northern Quebec and reconnects with the sense and spirit of the land. When he isn't on the reserve, he returns to his partner, technology, noise, and city life in downtown Ottawa.
