Untitled (Red Bull) by Shuvinai Ashoona – Inuit Art from Cape Dorset 2023 original hand drawing collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: Good condition – One ¾” tear repaired upper left top margin mostly visible verso. As paper is cut manually this results in uneven margins or disproportional size. In this case left side is ½” larger than right side gradually decreasing. It is common that original drawings will show minor handling marks and probably stains caused by the artist themselves. It is also common to see, particularly with Shuvinai’s drawings, uneven paper trimming.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Over two-meter long colourful and friendly drawing showing ten people, one caribou, one boy transforming into wolf, and what appears to be a red bull; all 13 individuals holding hands. Holding hands is a common theme we see in Shuvinai’s artworks giving a sense of togetherness and acceptance no matter who or what you are. This drawing is larger than I am even with arms stretched.
The blank sheet of letter-size (8.5” x 11”) paper covering part of the image in the last picture is for size reference.
