Masterpiece Sculpture! Museum quality Piece!
NOTE** Sadly, one of Inuit art's prominent figures has recently passed away. Joamie was a good friend and superb carver and I will miss him. Joamie Aipeelee (1963-2020).
The gallery received Joamie's last carvings just before he passed away.
Midnight Ink is one of his Signature Muskox sculptures.
It is with great pride that I present these four magnificent muskoxen.
When I acquired these four Joamie muskox sculptures I was elated!
Joamie belongs to the renowned Ipeelee family of Inuit artists. His father carved superlative muskoxen and trained Joamie to carve in a similar manner.
Joamie’s muskox sculptures are not large or overpowering. Instead they are reminiscent of the beast itself....impressive and strong with a gentle soul.
At this time, there are very few Joamie Ipeelee carvings available to collectors.
His reputation as a skilled and admired carver is on the same level as his peers Ashevak Tunnillie and Johnny Ragee.
Joamie’s creativity and his carving skill was infallible.
You can see his admiration and love for the animal in everyone of his sculptures.
These pieces of Joamie’s art will be valuable treasures as they bring joy and happiness to their owners.
I had high esteem for Joamie Ipeelee.
His absence will be felt for a long time.
