The Homelands Collection, 1st Edition
Commissioned - 16 artists have created works on 62 maps from the 1700's & 1800's.
During this past challenging winter, artists overlaid their stories onto original antique maps, going beyond the confines of flattened landscapes and static boundaries.
Creativity, contemplation and patience have resulted in this superb collection.
This year's edition is dedicated to Malaija Pootoogook of Cape Dorset (1971 - 2021).

Woman Transforming into Bear, Bronze and Patina
- 12" x 10" x 7
- Edition 2 of 25
" I have heard that a long time ago the earth's crust was thinner than it is today. During that time it was easier and so more common for human and animal people to transform. There are many Alaska Native stories, like the one this sculpture tells, of human people becoming bears."
