Billy Gauthier is a Labrador based artist who answers every question about what is new and exciting in Inuit art.
This is his first major solo exhibition and will comprise of over 20 sculptures carved by him over a two-year period. The sculptures vary in size but are all intimately carved with delicate detailing and inlays. The pieces are carved in a variety of materials including serpentine, anhydrite, ivory, antler and bone and reveal personal memories, as well as insights on traditional life in Labrador. He has never fallen into the pitfalls of repetition or predictability. It is obvious that he is truly excited about the creative process and each piece explores a narrative story, captures a moment in time, portrays characters he has met and envisions the darkest possibilities of the spirit world.
