Carvings

These carvings by Tlingit artist, Robert Davis Hoffmann, span a 30 year period, from 1976 to 2006. Ranging from 2-dimensional panels to 3-dimensional sculptural masks, bowls, and spoons, the carvings show my personal style I've developed over the years.

Sealaska Celebration Backdrop

This album shows the process of creating the enormous backdrop for the Sealaska Heritage Institute's biennial "Celebration." The images include working out the initial conception on paper, to laying out the design and laying on the paint in the basement of the Perseverence Theater during the months before the 2006 Celebration.

Jennifer Morrel, former set designer with the Perseverence Theater, taught me how to blow up my design, how to "draw" the design on the fireproof muslin, and then she taught the Sealaska Heritage crew to properly fold, store, and how to hang the backdrop. My brother, Alan Davis came to Juneau for a week when the deadline got close.

Recent Paintings

Paintings of Tlingit artist Robert Davis Hoffmann. Most of these are from 2008; many were created on commission, some as gifts, others for artist markets. These paintings are mostly in my own personal style of Tlingit formline, based on an older formline style.
