Notes from DaVic Gallery:  Self-defense is a simple image of two men standing fact-to-face as one has his hands on the other’s shoulders as the second man plunges a knife into the first’s side. This print brings balance in Inuit art between the traditional Inuit scenes that are often favoured by collectors of Inuit art and the often-hard reality of life in Pangnirtung.  Inuit culture has evolved adapting to harsh conditions and today remain struggling to evolve and identify and adapt to the strong influence of modernization and living in an economic system with its benefits and its social changes.
