Sphere (2010)


  • Medium: lithograph
  • Size: 30.25 × 22.5 inches
  • Edition: 50
  • Reference Code: CD2010-01


Jutai Toonoo, represented in the annual collection for the first time, has contributed one of the most provocative and enigmatic prints we have seen in many years. Sphere is a barely distinct lithograph depicting a crowd of stick figures and a dim circle of light. It is deceptively simple and unexciting at first sight yet a few minutes of thoughtful observation can lead the viewer into a myriad of interpretations.

—from the foreword by Leslie Boyd Ryan and John Westren

When I carve, I am giving part of myself. I put so much energy and passion into the carving that I am working on that I am physically and mentally drained when the carving is finished. I do not like wearing a protective mask when I’m carving, so I know that the dust I’m breathing in is killing me. Each carving that I make takes so much out of me.”
