Robin Rorick (Sk'uyuu)
Born 1980, Masset, BC
Robin is a Haida carver and painter who was raised on Haida Gwaii and Hornby Island. Robin’s mother is well known weaver Isabel Rorick, and is descended from the Yahgulaanas – Raven Clan of the Haida Nation. His maternal great treat grandparents were Charles and Isabelle Edenshaw and his great grandparents were Robert and Florence Davidson.
Rorick apprenticed with well known artist Ben Davidson for whom he helped to carve a 30 foot totem pole. He has also attended a series of design workshops helmed by Robert Davidson. Rorick is dedicated to exploring a variety of tools and techniques for creating and broadening his understanding of the Haida art form and its interconnectedness with the natural and supernatural.
In 2009, Rorick created a large scale canvas ceremonial dance curtain for potlatching. That same year, he went to Guatemala as part of a Haida effort culture exchange with the Mayan people at lake Atitlan. There, he shared his Haida art and performed Haida songs and dances with the Mayans.
At the moment, Rorick is concentrating on wood carving and printmaking but has intentions to expand his skill set.
