Notes from DaVic Gallery:  Complex composition of a house that sits in the middle of a white space as only background giving the impression of snow, ice, cold, isolation … Five windows of different size displaying window covering of different colours and shape.  Looking into the windows, only dark rooms can be seen… is this the house that the drawing titled “Indoor” is about too?  Colourless, almost lifeless outside and so colourful inside?  This house sure creates an anchor for the nomadic spirit of the Inuit.  The house and a few possessions we get to accumulate in our lifetimes that keep us in one place and employed.

Similarly, this drawing is not so much as decorative piece of art but I am sure this will trigger much thinking and conversations among the critics, new and seasoned in your social circle.  What could make a piece collectible if not this?
