Kingait Currents: Leading Sculptors of Cape Dorset
In this collection, we take pleasure in presenting eight Cape Dorset artists who are in the prime of their careers, creating great works of art, which challenge and delight both collectors and casual observers alike. Just as the first generation of artists opened our eyes to Inuit art in earlier decades, carvers of this second generation are the heart and soul of northern art today. At this point in their careers they have the skill and established reputations that allow them to experiment freely both in style and technique. While traditional images and wildlife figures are still prevalent, modern imagery and influence is not at all unusual.
These works are widely varied in scope and scale, but all reflect the immense talent and vital creativity of the individual artists.
