JENNIFER ANNESLEY - wildlight

Canada House Gallery is proud to present the striking watercolours of Jennifer Annesley. This award- winning artist has international recognition for her masterful compositions. Light and dramatic beauty are captured in Annesley's paintings of the Rocky Mountains, European architecture or quiet still-life scenes.

Artist statement: "Wildlight is my artistic view of how light changes our perception and experience of landscape and architecture. This "Wildlight" is a collection of new landscape and architectural paintings exploring the effects of light experienced in and around the wilds of western Canada.

Light sculpts the landscape with shadow, gradation and highlight; it paints surfaces with unexpected colour, softens edges and sharpens lines. It can transform a cold winter’s day to golden warmth, or illuminate hidden detail in dark interiors, forests or river beds.

Light can change the unremarkable into the unforgettable."

Cee began carving when he was in his early twenties around 1990. His favourite subjects to carve are animal spirits and spirit transformations. *

He is the son of Cape Dorset artists Egeevudluk and Napachie Pootoogook. His maternal grandmother, the late Pitseolak Ashoona, was a renowned graphic artist at Cape Dorset.

Cee has been working as a stonecut printer trainee for three years, demonstrating an aptitude for the precise and methodical qualities required for the time consuming work of editioning prints. He has also been drawing for the past several years, depicting the day to day activities of community life as well as traditional subjects and wildlife.

Cee is the eldest son of the late Napachie Pootoogook and Eegyvadluk Pootoogook, and older brother to the well known Cape Dorset contemporary artist, Annie Pootoogook.

Born on August 1, 1967 in Cape Dorset, NU. Nationality is Inuit
