Notes from DaVic Gallery: I find “Neutralizer” rather unusual and unique deviation from Teevee’s usual use of imagery based on owls, arctic animals, and on traditional Inuit legends and myths. Perhaps the only reminder of her usual imagery is the leg of raven that is crooked and trying to find balance while wearing a stiletto. More common would be to see a raven inside, on, or wearing kamiks. This feels perhaps a bit satirical view of comforts afforded by western social and economic influence on the Inuit culture. “What could I possibly need stilettos for?” I can hear Teevee thinking out loud. “My culture, my animals, my people, my legends have no use for this stuff…”
