September 20 – October 11, 2014
Feheley Fine Arts is delighted to present Woven Thoughts, an exhibition of recent works by Cape Dorset artist, Shuvinai Ashoona, curated by Nancy Campbell. Through continuous experimentation with subject matter, Ashoona’s inventive drawings are consistently at the forefront of contemporary Inuit art. Her recent drawings are a combination of reality and the disturbingly imaginative. Her intricate compositions often involve a highly developed colour spectrum and her own abstract outlook of northern life. Shuvinai Ashoona’s unfailing devotion to developing her art and individual style have made her one of the most prominent contemporary Inuit artists.
Shuvinai Ashoona’s work continues to gain momentum and exposure; her artwork has been exhibited alongside the work of Annie Pootoogook, Sobey Art Award winner, and Shary Boyle, who represented Canada at the Venice Biennale in 2013. Ashoona has been featured in curated exhibitions including SITElines: New Perspectives on Art of the Americas, Sakahàn at the National Gallery ofCanada, the 18th Sydney Biennale, Oh Canada at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, and Inuit Modern: The Samuel and Esther Sarick Collectionat the Art Gallery of Ontario. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the TD Bank Financial Group.
Meet the Artist: Thursday, October 2, 5 – 7 pm.
