Inukshuks
22" x 30"
Mixed Media  
$  1,800.00
Inukshuks are route markers. The Inuits stack stones in the frozen tundra to mark the way. To the Inuit hunter, everything radiates from his center and is the most spectacular thing for the moment. His sled carries him toward the route marker, his seal-skin wrap shelters him, and the huskies are his companions. His small complete world is the center of the universe from which he conducts business and keeps safe. He knows that life at this moment is depending on his knowledge of the details. There is a great human capacity to forage the world and glean scraps of what we need to survive and flourish. Like the Inuit hunter crossing the ice, an artist explores, gathers, fights and finds knowledge and intuition in the details. In this painting of an inukshuk, I've added the accumulative details that directed me to this point where I formulate the art on paper.
