"Interdependents" or "Arrangement on Blue", © 1979 Norval Morrisseau

-
How is it possible for the above painting titled "Ancestral Spirit with Evil Serpent" supposedly labeled fake by Norval Morrisseau in May 2001 in the National Post's "Morrisseau fakes alleged" and excluded from the 'fakes and imitations' list of the Norval Morrisseau's sworn affidavit only two years later? (click HERE)
-
How is it possible for the above painting titled "Interdependents" or "Arrangement in Blue" supposedly labeled fake by Norval Morrisseau on March 14th, 2003 (click HERE) and only one month later on April 24th, 2003 excluded from the 'fakes and imitations' list of the Norval Morrisseau's sworn affidavit? (click HERE)
-
After reading the rest of these posts it is going to be clear that Norval Morrisseau was not aware of the situation and that the above contradictions could only represent manipulations of Donald Robinson of Kinsman Robinson Galleries (click HERE) and Gabor Vadas of Nanaimo, BC (click HERE).
-
Ritchie 'Stardreamer' Sinclair MISSINFORMED THE PUBLIC at www.morrisseau.com when he stated that in the final years of his life Morrisseau fought desperately against the proliferation of thousands of inferior counterfeit paintings, identifying fake and forged works available for sale and that between 1993 and his death in 2007. He also stated that Norval Morrisseau sent multiple sworn declarations to dealers and galleries demanding fake and forged works misattributed to him be removed from sale or destroyed. The same affidavits were mentioned in questionable 'Expert Report' by Donald C. Robinson issued as a part of Ritchie 'Stardreamer' Sinclair's defence in Otavnik Vs Sinclair SC 09-00082782-0000 - Formerly S8871/08; Otavnik Vs Sinclair and Kinsman Robinson Galleries (click HERE).
-
Important notes: In case of the Norval Morrisseau's signed affidavit dated November 30th, 2004 directed to Mr. Gary Lamont for the paintings presented at his www.woodlandartgallery.ca it had never been sent to Mr. Gary Lamont while Norval Morrisseau was alive because he only became aware of it in 2008. Gabor Vadas had many opportunities to deliver this affidavit to Mr. Gary Lamont including the time when Mr. Lamont visited Norval Morrisseau in Nanaimo, BC on May 18th, 2005 (click HERE... see last three images at the bottom of page). Gabor Vadas did not have the decency to hand this affidavit to Mr. Gary Lamont and I do not believe he ever had intention to do so neither, and he 'conveniently' waited for Norval Morrisseau to die before exposing it to the public and consequently to Mr. Gary Lamont (click HERE). I do not believe that Norval Morrisseau would have ever presented such a strong statement about paintings listed in this sworn affidavit without expressing 'his' concerns to his very good friend Mr. Gary Lamont who is the owner of www.woodlandartgallery.ca.
-
The following is going to show that Norval Morrisseau did not send sworn affidavits between 1993 and 2007 - this actually occured only between 2003 and 2005 as a part of manipulation scheme by Gabor Vadas.

Norval Morrisseau Conspiracy Unveiled (Part II)

-
-
Exhibit No. 1
-
The Following is an agreement that Norval Morrisseau signed with Kinsman Robinson Galleries giving them 'the completely exclusive right for Canada to market his paintings and drawings' that appeared in a questionable 'Expert Report' by Donald C. Robinson.
-
~ Donald Robinson originally wanted to get 'the completely exclusive right for the world to market Norval Morrisseau's paintings and drawings' to which Norval Morrisseau objected (see below).

-
-
Norval Morrisseau dealt with signing off the papers with a "white man" in a very "indian way". In 1962 when Jack Pollock wanted to drew up a standard consignment with Norval Morrisseau in connection with paintings to be exhibited in his first public showing at The Pollock Gallery in Toronto, Norval Morrisseau "glanced at the form and tore it to shreds, quoting his grandfather, 'White man's papers are absolutely worthless and not to be believed."*
-
* - quotation from page 18 in "The Art of Norval Morrisseau" /Sinclair, Lister, Jack Pollock, and Norval Morrisseau/ -Toronto, Ontario: Methuen, 1979; ISBN: 0-458-93820-3/
-
The individuals involved in this conspiracy state that 'no gallery officially representing the artist standing behind these paintings'. Also they state that 'no Jack Pollock label has ever been found on any of these purported Morrisseau paintings. Yet all those '70s painting were supposed to have been done during the strongest period in the Morrisseau - Pollock connection. Which then over-lapped with the period Norval spent with a couple of apprentices.'
-
MANY PEOPLE KNOW that majority of the Norval Morrisseau's paintings were not acquired from the artist's "official representatives" such are The Pollock Gallery and Kinsman Robinson Galleries but directly from the artist.
-
There are large quantity of Norval Morrisseau's paintings offered door-to-door by the artist and sold for a pure survival and many were just given away as his appreciation towards people that assisted him along his life's journey. Many times Norval Morrisseau would acquire 'the things of interest' by providing a number of paintings for an exchange. There had been moments where he would be 'entertained' by male escorts from Vancouver, flying to Thunder Bay, and they would demand 'a specific number of paintings' rather than money 'for services rendered'.
-
There is also a well known case when the group of lawyers from Thunder Bay purchased large number of paintings from Norval Morrisseau to use them as a tax write-off. Donald C. Robinson of Kinsman Robinson Galleries commisioned a 270 page report for 211 Norval Morrisseau paintings that lawyers Zelinski, Whent and Pustina of Thunder Bay, Ontario purchased from 1984 to 1986 (click HERE to read a thank you letter to Donald C. Robinson written and signed by Nicholas J. Pustina & click HERE for more information about this court case). It is strange that in 2005 Donald C. Robinson in Kinsman Robinson Galleries' publication "NORVAL MORRISSEAU - Return to the House of Invention" stated the following which was contrary to the information presented in this exhibit and elswhere: "The 1980s were turbulent years for Norval. After his break from the Pollock Gallery and its final collapse in 1983, the artist's productive life was seriously interrupted by bouts of destructive alcoholism. His artistic productivity was next-to-nothing during these periods." (see Page 144)
-
>>> NONE OF THESE PAINTINGS MENTIONED HEREIN HAVE GALLERY STICKERS AND/OR BILLS OF SALE FROM THE 'OFFICIAL REPRESENTATIVES' & THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF THEM, MANY OF WHICH ENDED IN PRIVATE COLLECTIONS, GALLERIES, MUSEUMS AND AUCTION HOUSES ALL OVER NORTH AMERICA AND BEYOND. <<<
--
NOTE: It is a shame that gallery who claims to be a 'Norval Morrisseau principal dealer' treats disrespectfully paintings that they do not own and glorify the artworks on their gallery's 'Morrisseau inventory list' rather than treating every Norval Morrisseau artwork with same respect. It is obvious that their agenda is to 'what benefits them' and not 'what would the general public be able to benefit from' (see Exhibit No. 14).

Debassige presents an eagle feather to idol: internationally acclaimed artist Morrisseau

-
Jennifer McCauley,
The Manitoulin Expositor, published September 29, 1999
-
M'CHIGEENG - It was a poignant moment for M'Chigeeng artist Blair Debassige as he presented his idol, interna­tionally acclaimed artist Norval Morrisseau, with an eagle feather, the highest honour an aboriginal person can receive.
-
The sacred ceremony was held last Friday at the Ojibwe Cultural Foundation (OCF) in M'Chigeeng. When one receives an eagle feather, that person is being acknowledged with gratitude, love and ultimate respect, says Mr. Debassige, who owns Nimkee art gallery in M'Chigeeng.
-
"I hold a lot of respect for Norval as an artist, but also as a friend," be says. "This is my way of honouring him." Mr. Morrisseau could not describe the depth of feeling receiving a sacred Ragle feather invokes. "It is like receiving a star on Hollywood, but better," he says.
-
The intensity of emotion cannot be described by English words, says Weekan, Mr. Morrisseau's adopted son. "There is no way to trans­late those feel­ings from Ojibwe into English," he adds. "The only compari­son I can make is the intense feelings you fall in love with someone and every­thing is per­fect."
-
The ceremo­ny began with Paul Nadjiwan, executive director of the OCF, leading the M'Swanoodin singers in an opening song as they rhythmatically beat the ceremonial drum. The feather was then prepared with sacred tobacco. In this way, the eagle and the Creator are notified of the name of the new eagle feather holder. After the feather was pre­pared, Weekan, accompanied by Mr. Debassige, pushed Mr. Morrisseau's wheelchair around the circle in time to the drum's beat.

-
All those who came to witness the cere­mony were encouraged to dance behind Mr. Morrisseau to demonstrate their support. At the song's conclusion, Mr. Debassige presented the feather to his "role model."
-
Anyone who receives an eagle feather must make a home where the feather will be kept. The feather also must be fed by holding or wearing it at sacred ceremonies. By doing this, the feather becomes recharged with sacred energy.
-
Mr. Debassige's dream was finally realized with Mr. Morrisseau's visit to Manitoulin. Since the age of 13, Mr. Debassige has dreamed of painting in his studio with the man who has become known as the father of Woodland Indian art.
-
Mr. Morrisseau plans to use his time on the Island to paint and prepare for the Kinsman Robinson Gallery Show in Toronto next month. The show, which will com­bine old and new paintings, will be the largest exhibition of his work to date. Painting aside, Mr. Morrisseau, who suffers from Parkinsons disease, came to the Island to partake of tra­ditional Anishinabae healing.
-
"I consider Manitoulin Island to be the most sacred place in Canada." he says. "Cleaning the toxins from my body is the only way I'm going to get better." The Island air helps to clear his mind and the beauty please his artistic eye, Weekan says.

-
"Norval has told me a lot about Manitoulin Island," he adds. "He has helped me to understand the spiritual force that exists in this place. There is so much energy here."
-
Since his arrival on the Island last Wednesday, Mr. Morrisseau has begun six new paintings in traditional Woodland style. This type of painting has been termed x-ray vision in the past because the artist depicts the inner work­ings or feelings of the subject.
-
The dozen of Mr. Morrisseau's paintings dis­played at Nimkee gallery are explo­sions of vibrant color depicting aboriginal imagery. Bright melon, canary yellow, fuchsia, vermilion, aqua­marine, violet and royal blue bring the pictures to life, emphasizing, the black outlines of the subjects. Occa­sional touches of softer pastels or earthy brown tones soothe the eye.

-
"I paint with these colors to heal," he says. "My paint­ings honor the "Ahneesheenahpay" ancestors who have roamed the Great Lakes for centuries upon centuries. My art records and preserves the legends, art, songs and beliefs of the "Ahneesheenahpay," not only for this generation, but for all future "Ahneesheenahpay."

-
The compositions, which range in price from $3,200 to $15,000, are painted on canvas or Arches paper. Unlike most artists, Mr. Morrisseau draws his inspira­tion from his "inward reserves" rather than looking to his surroundings or environment for ideas.

-
"My heart and soul is reflected into my mind and my mind is reflected into my hands."
-
His inspiration originates from the stories and legends he heard as a boy. Born in 1932, on the Sand Point Lake Reserve north of Thunder Bay, he learned traditional Ojibwe customs, values and beliefs from his grandparents.

-
During his youth, Mr. Morrisseau received his "mis­sion" from his grandfather to share through art all of the values he was taught to respect about the Ojibwe culture.

-
It was in the 1950s, while hospitalized with tuberculosis that he began painting and drawing his visions on birch bark and brown paper bags. Although his beginnings were humble, he now has more than 40 one-man shows under his belt.

-
Mr. Morrisseau wears many hats. Aside from being a renowned artist, he is also a Shaman (or medicine man) and a published author. In Travel to the House of Inven­tion, he pens a powerful account of his life and art career.

-
From the first time he picked up a brush, painting became his passion, he says. Over the years that passion has grown and strengthened.

-
"There is no other way to describe it," he says. "To paint is to live."

21. Interior of Nimkee Art Gallery Studio showing Norval Morrisseau paintings ranging from 1970's to 1990's /Click on image to Enlarge/
-
-
Here are 21 photographs of Norval Morrisseau including the Manitoulin island 'Eagle Feather Ceremony' at the Ojibwe Cultural Foundation (OCF). These photographs clearly show Norval Morrisseau's contentment and credibility concerning the paintings that these few individuals have publicly slandered as 'questionable', 'fakes', 'forgeries', 'abominations' and other defamatory attributes and they have now been exposed for the 'conspiracy' surrounding this whole issue. The paintings in the backgrounds are authentic Norval Morrisseau paintings predominantly from the 1970's period. The Eagle Feather Ceremony is a sacred ceremony. Norval Morrisseau knew that with his full heart and soul. It has been said by these individuals that Norval Morrisseau did not have record nor paint in this common style. Which is at the heart of this conspiracy to corner the market by these few scrupulous individuals by trashing this great period and body of work by Morrisseau so that they can sell their much 'later period work' which they hold inventory stock in for sale.
-
To these people it's all about 'beating out the competion' through slander and disinformation spread by themselves. A spiritual man of Morrisseau's calibre would not 'dare to accept' an eagle feather in such a spiritually charged place as Manitoulin Island under 'false pretense' of his artwork clearly shown displayed on the walls of the gallery where this ceremony had taken place. Mr. Morrisseau would have considered this 'sacreligious' to say the least and would not put his soul and spirit in jeopardy if he didn't feel right about being there and having his own artwork prominently displayed and be awarded an eagle feather.

ADDENDUM:
-
As per conversation with Kathleen Debassige, former co-owner of Nimkee Art Gallery. She told me that Norval Morrisseau had stayed for 10 days in the gallery in September/October of 1999. She also stated that at no time were there any negative or critical comments made by Norval Morrisseau regarding the gallery’s art collection. She said that he stayed initially for one week and then went into Toronto to open an art show at Kinsman Robinson Galleries. After the exhibition he came back to M'Chigeeng and stayed with them at the gallery for another three days before going back home to Nanaimo, British Columbia. She also mentioned that he signed the gallery’s guestbook and he allowed many photos with numerous people and his art to be taken. As a closing statement she mentioned that he painted many new artworks in the gallery’s studio and that he genuinely enjoyed his visit as much as they enjoyed having him.
-
Bellow presented is her signed affidavit attesting to the veracity of out conversation:

NOTE: Her handwritten comment, directed to me personally, states the following:
-
"I do believe that pictures speak louder than words sometimes. Norval signing book (click HERE) and smiling in front of his art (click HERE); Gabe smiling and wearing hat Norval asked me to make him from his robe (click HERE). Staying in gallery for 10 days, these things are not consistent with the idea that they were upset about fake art."

Norval Morrisseau Conspiracy Unveiled (Part V)

-
-
--
Exhibit No. 4
-
In the above mentioned 'National Post' article (see Exhibit No. 5), which will be presented in its entirety in the next exhibit, Mr. Donald Robinson (of Kinsman Robinson Galleries) states that he was suspicious of the authenticity of 23 paintings which were brought to him by another collector who purchased them at Kahn Auctions sold by Mr. Randy Potter (auctioneer). Mr. Robinson in the article only mentions that he bought some works of Norval Morrisseau at Kahn Auctions himself. In fact, over the period between late 1999 and early 2000 Mr. Robinson actually purchased 28 painting from the same auction house as the receipts presented below show. He openly encouraged other people to buy them and unsuccessfully bid on another 40 to 60 more paintings from the same auction house.
-
NOTE: The first series of paintings that Donald Robinson purchased at Kahn Auctions occured on exacly the same day as the newspaper article in the previous exhibit.

Donald C. Robinson of Kinsman Robinson Galleries was once an active attendee and bidder at Kahn's Country Auctions in Pickering Ontario starting in September 1999 up until March 2000. It is important to mention that Donald C. Robinson was the underbidder on numerous genuine Norval Morrisseau paintings sold at Kahn's Auctions as those presented on The Canadian 'Anglo-Boer War' Museum' - online edition (click HERE). These paintings are now owned by 'Anglo-Boer War' Museum' had Donald C. Robinson as the underbidder at the auction and were later labeled as "Inferior Counterfeit Morrisseaus" by Ritchie R. Sinclair a.k.a. Stardreamer (click HERE). These auctions were hosted by Mr. Randy Potter (see 'Exhibit No. 20').

Mr. Robinson's peculiar behaviour will be highlighted here in this addendum with new supporting evidence that has come to light. As stated in this wxhibit we have shown clearly that Mr. Robinson had purchased 28 genuine Norval Morrisseau paintings at Kahn's Auctions with the original receipts. As stated before Donald C. Robinson was responsible 14 months later on May 18th 2001 for launching a slanderous market espionage attack article that would appear in the National Post newspaper (see 'Exhibit No. 5'). In this newspaper article we have a Donald C. Robinson attacking the auctioneer Mr. Randy Potter and the paintings at this auction for being forgeries which Donald C. Robinson gladly and feverishly purchased. We have made it clear that Mr. Robinson never tried to ask for a refund of the 28 paintings of said 28 artworks from the auctioneer Mr. Randy Potter? However, a refund of $250.00 +GST totaling $267.50 was made by Mr. Potter to Donald C. Robinson in regards to a 'Robert Davidson' painting dated 1975 (see above). We now have the image file of the original 'cheque' issued to Donald C. Robinson by Randy Potter's Kahn's Auctions in this matter.

* The unbelievable and strange behaviour that we have exposed here is in regards to the fact that Donald C. Robinson of Kinsman Robinson Galleries requested a refund on a lesser painting supposedly done by Robert Davidson for $267.50 but allowed himself to incur a loss of $53,238.73 including GST from the purchases of 28 genuine Norval Morrisseau paintings. Which he would slander and defame 14 months later in a National Post Newspaper article dated May 18th 2001 as being all fake paintings that he had purchased from Randy Potter and never requesting a single dollar back from Mr. Randy Potter on the 28 paintings that he had purchased? /see 'Exhibit No. 5'/
