The images of Inuit artists are reinvented/reinterpreted into contemporary, highly color-saturated and textural paintings on paper. I use a wide variety of mediums to create the desired effect.
I try to maintain the Inua (spirit of all things) that was vested into the originals. This would include keeping the imagery somewhat raw, instinctual and with a pronounced sense of naiveté.
Carrying over from last year I continued working on the Inuit/Calder Influences series ,one of many sub series. It’s a simple concept of layering/merging/blending the images of Calder with Inuit ones.
Visiting Scandinavia last summer rekindled my love of Edvard Munch so I started yet another sub-series, Inuit/Munch Influences. I used his work to set a much different tone and create a higher contrast to Inuit imagery. I heavily borrowed from his palette Munch kept returning to the same themes. I like to do that too.
Up to date work: Inuit Influences: from our collection. I am using a looser style, freely interpreting the sculptures I see everyday.
Currently, not only am I on the Invaluable website but I have joined Artlery, a new way of finding artists and their works.
