Norval Morrisseau (1978) Artist with Spirit Self

Artist with Spirit Self
Norval Morrisseau
1978
Not until the mid-1970’s was Morrisseau able to come to terms with his anger and erratic behaviour. At this time he became a disciple of Eckankar, a religious movement which espouses a concept of soul travel and universality more compatible, in his view, with traditional Ojibwa beliefs. This led to a broader approach to spiritual issues in his work and coincided with an exploration of multi-panel painting.
