Notes from DaVic Gallery: Last print available.
In Angijuqtaq, Teevee shows a modern dress suspended from a metal coat hanger. On the dress’s shimmering deep-blue surface are undulating schools of fish threading across the garment in both directions. The pattern reflects the artist’s interest in nature, as does the gently swaying bed of kelp at the bottom of the dress. But this image of printed cloth would seem equally to be a self-referential meditation on artistic production. Teevee’s use of the aquatint technique to represent water shows great understanding of the medium. It also makes for a thoroughly contemporary take on the classic Inuit graphic convention of a single object isolated on the page.
