MASTERPIECE CARVING MUSEUM CALIBRE
Do you know what I love about Inuit Art? Just when I think I've seen the nicest piece of my life... I am amused, surprised, and astonished to come across a sculpture that is even nicer.
This Orca is such a piece.
This is the sculpture de jour. The one that feeds my curator/collector addiction for the next great piece of art.
Johnnysa Mathewsie is the creator of this magnificent Orca.
The water seems to be dripping from the hide of this breeching Orca. The yellow green mottled stone simulates the dreamy underwater world. This sculpture is true to life. I see it move out of the corner of my eye.
Quite frankly, this really is one of the greatest pieces of art that we have ever had in the gallery.
It possesses an extraordinary post modern bohemian feel that would easily be at home in a high rise condo in downtown Toronto or Tribeca NYC.
For these reasons alone, I put this piece into the masterpiece category.
Thank you, Johnnysa Mathewsie.
