INTRODUCTION:

We wish you a good day to each and everyone. On Oct.1st, 2011, Mark Anthony Jacobson became the first native artist in Canadian history to launch and publish an authorized and official catalogue raisonne of his known artworks to date, preceding that of either Norval Morrisseau and the N.M.H.S. (The Norval Morrisseau Heritage Society). We extend a warm welcome to the many friends, collectors, researchers, galleries, museums and other institutions both educational and otherwise worldwide to this authorized resource on Mark Anthony Jacobson artworks. This database will offer and ensure impeccable pedigree for each piece of Jacobson art, will be an excellent source of security from forgeries and will guarantee the authenticity of your various Mark Anthony Jacobson artworks by offering solid provenance and documentation which is found throughout this catalogue.

There will be many updates to this catalogue raisonne over time. So far, we have found a wide variety of many hundreds of Jacobson artworks and there are still about 800 pieces which we hope will be found that date from 1987 to 2010 and will be added to this database. In the meantime, please feel free to browse the many paintings, drawings, prints and other media which the artist has created. This database will continue to grow with images and stories to his artworks from the past, to the present new updates of his latest works, and the future of newly discovered treasures. We thank you for expressing your interest in collecting, marketing, and educating yourselves about the art and legacy of one of Canada's most exciting shamanistic woodland artists. All our relations.

NOTES
The concept/story to this 3 piece set: A new collector of my works recently travelled to Iceland. He was highly moved by the glaciers and icebergs upon this journey. He is also a huge fan of our woodland school of art, in which I am a guardian of, asked by Norval himself before he passed on, to help in protecting his legacy and that of our woodland art ancestors. His request upon this commissioned piece was to reflect these concerns, passion and love for these beings (glaciers and icebergs). It was a challenging process none the less, as artists know and understand, our wish to execute with precision and to essentially target the goal at hand. Another stirring reality to this painting is the very fact of global warming as the direct result of our behaviour upon this earth, we all call home. This reality of the earth's glaciers dying off is a major and serious problem, for all earths creations. We must take the lead, this current generation of souls that we are to shift our actions. We must or those being born here, over the next 7 generations will experience devastating consequences. The time for change is now, not in the future. We must find a healthier way as a species to help protect and conserve for our future generations. The water in all of its forms is telling us, to pay attention. Listen to how the 4 elements are speaking. We are entering a period where those in whom we love, our family, children, the animals, birds,  fish and all other aspects of creation are giving us signs. These glacier powers are changing. They are teaching us that the time for collective change is now. It is an honor to speak through this painting, on their behalf, on behalf of everything connected to the sacred power of our water....all my relations, MAJ
