Storytelling is the most essential device for Inuit artists. Mythical stories involving all living things as special characters. These sculptural pieces are carved from a variety of traditional materials including soapstone, walrus tusks and, occasionally, jade.
Inuit graphic art began in the 1950's. Subject matter may range from mythological figures to stories of Inuit life both past and present. Inuit interactions with the landscape, wildlife and each other greatly influence their art in technique as well as narrative.
This album features both fun, bright country scenes full of bright colours, but also more subdued "at peace" scenes, and everything in between. These artworks are ideal for any room, especially those with a "old-timey" or country theme or feel. They're also ideal for (insulated and heated) barns.
Cool ocean breezes, calm lapping lakes and fun beach days can be found in this collection. These peaces are quite ideal for cottages, beach/lake houses, or simply for those who love the beauty found within the changing characteristics of water. Water can portray serenity, power, diligence, and flexibility, even when it's only paint.
Our collection of the artist's favorite subject. Figure Studies are as large a tradition as the still life or the landscape. Images of the body celebrate its beauty in both shape and movement, capturing both image and spirit.
Maurice first became interested in learning both the technique and the art of stained glass in 1987. Learning the basics mostly through reading and experimentation, he was already aware of its creative potential far beyond traditional vocation. He uses different approaches and elements from the figurative, abstract, art deco and baroque styles.
Period pieces are often those which are Victorian (or earlier) in spirit. Many of our period pieces are true pieces from the 19th century, some of which are in their original, antique frames. Both regal and elegant, these gorgeous paintings are timeless.
Among the earliest craftspeople in Canada to set up a studio and to make a living by selling their work were Erica and Kjeld Deichmann. Although many potters since have become full-fledged professionals, the Deichmanns were the pathfinders. Their careers span a critical period - from 1935 until Kjeld's death in 1963 - that represents a turning point in the history of crafts in Canada. It was the point at which the traditional crafts gave birth to the crafts as an artistic endeavour.
Although small, these small works of art lack neither the impact nor personality of larger paintings. Many in this collection are incredibly detailed, and all made with great attention and care, and are good for travelling both near and far.
