It’s Canadian Art auction week in Toronto! I spent the cold Sunday afternoon going to most of the previews in the city.
I really liked this large Inuit sculpture of a hunter @walkersauctions for their sale of ‘Inuit and First Nations Art’. Originating from Inukjuak (Port Harrison) and made circa 1952, he has an oversized head with a fierce expression and ivory inlay details. #inuitart#canadianart#inukjuak#portharrison#walkersauction

Huge thank you to CaPSL Affiliate Dr. Heather Igloliorte for the insightful look into the emergence of contemporary Inuit art, as part of the AHCS Speaker Series. Her presentation, “Instructors and Innovators: Unconventional Inuit Art in the late 20th and early 21st Centuries” examined the history of modern and contemporary Inuit art by investigating how artistic innovation and interventions have changed and expanded the field of Inuit art history and practice.

DYK: The work of Isabella Weetaluktuk's late grandparents is in the INSURGENCE/RESURGENCE exhibition right next to where her film Three Thousand is being screened? We ❤️ the intergenerational display of work! Also, pro tip: sit on the seal skin hearts while watching the film (the sound is directional, so this makes it that much more magical💫✨) #surgence#inuitart#contemporaryart#filmmaking#wag#winnipegartgallery

About the artsit
Reference: The Canadian Encyclopedia
Pudlo Pudlat, graphic artist (b at Kamadjuak Camp, Baffin I, NWT 4 Feb 1916; d at Cape Dorset, NWT 28 Dec 1992). One of the most original contemporary Inuit artists, Pudlo began drawing in the early 1960s after he had moved to CAPE DORSET, NWT, leaving a seminomadic life of seasonal hunting and fishing behind him. His preferred medium is a combination of acrylic wash and coloured pencils.
In contrast with most of his contemporaries, Pudlo has included in his imagery icons of the modern technology that has brought such profound changes to the Canadian North. In his work, airplanes, helicopters and telephone poles enter into strange interactions with the arctic landscape and its animals. A muskox rider lassoing an airplane or a loon steering a motorboat are examples of his juxtapositions. In many ways Pudlo's work symbolizes the paradoxes of the encounter between 2 cultures.
His works are in the collections of most Canadian museums. In 1990 the NATIONAL GALLERY OF CANADA organized a retrospective exhibition of his drawings.
