Inuit Influences: Seeing Black/ Hunters
The Hunters series was inspired by Jamasie Teevee's 1975 drawing called Hunters. The simplicity of idea, the flatness and black and white patterns seemed beguiling and I proceeded, in 2011, to make 15 two piece hunters using a wide range of extreme color, texture and patterning. This year the series became transformed with gender fluid faces based on James Kerry Marshall's self portrait and modifying the lower body to match each individual Inuktitut syllabics. All spell out 'Hunter'. Are blended into the background or the hunter's suit. See my blog entry of September 4th for about JKM.
