Itee Pootoogook: Summertime/Jutai Toonoo: Cloudy Day

Inuit Gallery Of Vancouver
Vancouver BC – Sep 18-Oct 8, 2010

The Inuit Gallery is pleased to present original drawings by Inuit artists using a variety of mediums such as ink, pencil crayons or colored pencils, pastels, and graphite to illustrate the landscape. Landscapes without any people, man-made structures or animals are relatively new, possibly from nostalgia for the open land since many of the artist are now settled in communities, and possibly from the influence of Western art. Some of the drawings depict the bounty and expanse of the arctic tundra, while others depict a more abstract landscape of the mind.

Horseshoe Bay artist Lil Chrzan paints traditional landscapes with exaggerated lighting and colour, creating almost theatrical settings of forest, lakes and mountains. Calling them “Luminous Landscape” paintings, she invites the viewer to enter her world and experience the hyper, emotionally-charged scenes. A mature artist, Chrzan graduated from Emily Carr College of Art and Design in 1987 and has exhibited in over 70 shows since graduation, the majority in public spaces and West Vancouver’s Ferry Building.
