Notes from DaVic Gallery:   Pudlo’s art is characterized by a playful sense of humor and a fascination with the trappings of modern life, especially airplanes. In many ways Pudlo’s work such as “Aeroplane” symbolizes the paradoxes of the encounter between traditional Inuit culture and modern life.  Pudlo’s works over the years demonstrate his keen visual sense, his versatility and innovativeness in subject matter and technique — tempered by his sense of humor — his knowledge of traditional life on the land, and his acknowledgement of the changing times.  This image is depicted on a 1978 Canada Post stamp.

‘Aeroplane’ is a fanciful, marvelous combination of Pudlo’s images. A meeting of two different worlds with no overtones of nervousness. The seals proudly bask and the people can in some mysterious way approach the airborne plane. – Cape Dorset 1976 catalog.
