Northwest Passage No 10 memorializes the loss of a once treacherous and skill-defining traverse and draws attention to the numerous fool-hardy attempts to navigate it by arrogant colonialist explorers who disregarded the survival methods of the local people assuming their knowledge was inherently superior. The hubris of this attitude resulted in the unnecessary loss of numerous lives. The Franklin expedition, pictured here, was an 1845 British envoy that set out ill-prepared and resultantly lost the lives 129 officers and men. 

Richard James Rivet was born in the remote area of Aklavik in the Northwest Territories of Canada in 1949, though he has recently moved to Belleville, ON.  Of Metis background, Rivet's Indigenous roots, and his experience in growing up in Canada's North, have been important factors in his development as an artist.
