Notes from DaVic Gallery:    Again, we look at this intriguing drawing and you ask yourself, is this Inuit Art?   How?  The viewer cannot help feel drawn into such expression of female sensuality in this composition.  This drawing exhales sensuality, femininity that only the right collector can pull off displaying such piece.   Would you have even considered this drawing to be categorized as Inuit Art had you not seen in this gallery or presented by Dorset Fine Arts?   Perhaps the need to verify is what brought you to the details page for this drawing.  Jutai Toonoo certainly will challenge your secured sense of what you understood Inuit Art is all about.  Jutai’s drawings cast a spell on us, the magic that attracts us and keeps us staring at his works, is the intensity of life that breathes from all of his works.  The viewer can feel the energy Jutai put into each of his works and now that energy attracts us, calls us to try to understand what he is expressing.  That is the keyword in Jutai’s works, expression.

Such an amazing, intriguing, refreshing surprise to the Inuit Art collector and connoisseurs alike!  Are you scratching your head?  Don’t.  Simply admire this beautiful and amazing composition that truly overflows with life energy, despite the topic, and that takes higher value when you know how and why this is such a rare piece based on the cultural background of the author.  How can you not just bathe in such moment expressed with such energy Jutai pours into each and every piece he created?

This extremely sensual and enticing drawing of a woman, legs spread, in bed at night waiting to be made love to is at first sight not easy to identify as such.  Only once the viewer begins to identify female body parts such as legs then we can then continue running our eyes through the lines until we have identified every feminine sexual body part from thighs, buttocks, and genitals.  All sensually, delicately and intensely depicted.  She waits anxiously and she is sexually aroused as we can see the irresistible scent produced by her vagina inviting her lover.

Such representation done in the way that only Jutai possibly could.  The same way he presents himself so intimately and raw in his self-portraits, he presents us with a very intimate and raw interpretation of how he perceives his lover and how acute his senses are when he is ready to make love to her.
