The series Inuit Influences has been on-going for over 8 years. I reinterpret Inuit art images into contemporary, highly color saturated, textual paintings using a wide variety of mediums on paper. In an off-shoot series called Amautik I explored the relationship of mother and child and the round hood that bonds them. In the last two years I have added influences from some favorite artists such as Alexander Calder, Edvard Munch and Adolph Gottlieb.
Inuit Influences: from our collection is based on works from our Inuit art collection.
I am working towards layering, blending and merging diverse imagery and concepts with a goal of maintaining a certain joie de vivre all the while pursuing a quest for increased abstraction.
