Inuk artist Itee Pootoogook is one of Canada’s most exciting contemporary voices of the moment.
Though Pootoogook’s works have been featured in the annual Cape Dorset print collection, he’s best known for his drawings.
Starting Saturday, September 21, a selection of these works will be exhibited at Feheley Fine Arts, a Toronto gallery.
“They have a stillness and a serenity that is extraordinary,” says gallery owner Pat Feheley. “Even when there’s action… there’s a serenity, almost a dignity, to the works.”
To find out more about Itee Pootoogook and what his work can teach us about Canada’s North, I spoke to Pat Feheley from her Toronto Gallery.
