Artist Statement

Once upon a time in the West, a right hand and a wolf’s head etched in history did echo and were heard through the ages, beyond notions of race and time, beyond the veil of words, a song of eternal life in death. Above the hubris of those who would make war. A western with no end, chasing its tail towards the setting sun in twilight’s last trace before the night and the light of a new day.

From the archives of Honoré Jaxon comes a dance in three acts. In a journey through time and space from Batoche 1885 to New York City 1951. – Edward Poitras
