Ahmoo Angeconeb. 1955-2017
It is with great sadness to announce the passing of one of Northwestern Ontario's treasures-
ALLAN (AHMOO) ANGECONEB, 1955-2017
Rest in peace my friend.
Angeconeb is from the Lac Seul First Nation. Born in Sioux Lookout in 1955. He was educated at the visual arts at York University, Lakehead University, and both a graduate and instructor at Dalhousie University in Halifax from 1985 to 1989, Ahmoo Angeconeb has gradually turned the visual aesthetic and symbolic codes of the Woodland school artists while retaining their philosophical regard for tradition. As an international Ojibwa ambassador and representative, his travels have also benefited not only his study, but also his work of shared visual elements of global indigenous vocabularies. Ahmoo’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout North America and internationally and is held in numerous public and private collections worldwide.
His quiet genius is less known in his home region than it is abroad. He has been accorded solo shows in Cologne, Berlin, Munich, Monaco, Paris, Basel, Zurich, Santa Fe, as well as Toronto, ON Montrea, QC Halifax, NS London, ON and Vancouver, BC and Thunder Bay, ON. His work is widely collected and exhibited.
