Notes from DaVic Gallery: Another beautiful and inspiring landscape composition by Nicotye Samayualie that even though it has a feel of “detail” it really conveys the overwhelming vastness and solitude of the arctic. Last Day of Summer could either refer to September 20th or to the day Summer Camp for summer hunting and gathering season is over and Inuit begin preparing their trip back to prepare for Winter season. Waters are still ice free so the waters can still be navigated by kayak or umiak. Lovely clear skies of blue and clouds of yellow tones … all year round is active offering different challenges and possibilities for hunting … in modern society we look up to summer season for vacationing and relaxing and then we look up to winter season for winter sports and activities such as skiing, snowshoeing, etc for fun, … I wonder whether Inuit would have a favourite season as all activities are related to hunting, and survival.
