Notes from DaVic Gallery:   Perhaps a tense moment in Ashoona’s daughter’s lives with Nicotye giving Padloo comfort and reassurance everything is fine … hey wait anxiously for the call to tell them they arrived well and they are fine but the phone hangs on the wall silent… in modern life where we are all one text, email or phone call away there is always the expectation to receive quick answer and if not we jump into a mode wondering why they don’t respond.  In the old days, when hunters did not come back home there was perhaps the chance they never would.  This time instead of waiting in the hunting camp, the wives wait in a warm house.   Nicotye wears amauti while Padloo wears flannel pajamas after a shower.
