Much like some Inuit artists release an image from a piece of stone or other material, assembling an auction comes together organically. Even with all the planning and campaigning we do leading up to our auction, it can still remain a mystery up to the consignment deadline as to what the final product will end up being. We are very happy to reveal the collection of works that comprise our fall auction of Important Inuit Art. This season we are thrilled to offer works by favoured artists such as Osuitok Ipeelee and Karoo Ashevak, as well as sculptures from artists who have remained anonymous but are certainly no less admired. Our graphics selection is representative of the unique vision each artist expresses in their work. We're thrilled once again to offer you three powerful little prints from the Kinngait experimental collection released in 1958. You will find several of Kenojuak Ashevak's marvelous images from the early 1960's and many other striking works on paper from Kinngait and Qamani'tuaq. From the masterful large scale work by Davidialuk to the charming little Jessie Oonark textile, we are thrilled with how the auction has taken shape and confident there is something for every collector within the pages of this catalogue. We welcome you to join us this fall in celebrating Inuit art. — Christa Ouimet Specialist, Inuit Art

Inuit Art

Canadian Fine Art

Waddington’s is internationally recognized as one of the leading authorities in marketing Inuit Art. No other auction house has been as intrinsically linked to the development of a market for this art form. Inuit Art is a proud part of our DNA. From our first landmark auction in 1978 of the William Eccles Collection, Waddington’s has offered thousands of works, set record prices, and expanded the market well beyond Canada’s borders.

Waddington’s has been a major force in the Canadian art sector for over five decades, beginning with our first auction of Canadian Fine Art held at the Queen Elizabeth Building at the CNE in 1967. Since that historic event, Waddington’s has offered some of the most important Canadian works, set record prices, and has been an integral part of driving the Canadian art market.

Our legacy of successful Inuit Art auctions, our ability to achieve continually increasing values and our creation of an international market have been key factors in validating Inuit art as a whole and establishing it as an integral part of the Canadian Art scene.

Concrete Contemporary Auctions merges the worlds of traditional auction and the retail gallery, where our relationships with artists, art dealers, curators and collectors result in exciting new sources of contemporary works. The auctions are tightly focused on Canadian contemporary art since 1980 with an emphasis on midand late-career artists with exhibition history in the private and public sphere. An exciting initiative is the introduction of our Pop-Up Gallery series. These shortduration single artist exhibitions offer works by some of Canada’s most accomplished and influential working artists. As well, the groundbreaking Concrete Contemporary Acquisition Fund assists museums and public galleries in the acquisition of works by artists included in the auction. Led by one of Canada’s most plugged-in arts experts, Stephen Ranger, we are committed to exploring new ways to connect, expand and support the contemporary art community.

Note: Literally, the work features five small ivory figures in a tableau, facing one another with drawn spears, while a seated figure gazes down. This work combines the mediums, stone and ivory, with which Tungilik primarily worked. Likewise, the piece contains the artist’s impossibly small but detailed figures. One may read the piece simply as a selfportrait of the artist admiring his own work. More profoundly, we may understand this piece as the Judeo-Christian God or a shaman observing a scene of humans in conflict. Though this small stone and ivory work will never reveal a fixed truth, it allows for a free play of interpretations.

125 KAROO ASHEVAK (1940-1974), E4-196, SPENCE BAY BIRD GUARDING NEST OF EGGS bone, signed in syllabics 17.75” x 11” x 11” — 45.1 x 27.9 x 27.9 cm. Note: This whimsical depiction of a bird protecting its nest contains all of the elements of a classic Karoo sculpture. Characteristic of the artist’s work, this piece includes separate components. Karoo enjoyed making parts that fit together, floated freely or dangled from sinew. He often included pegged-on appendages or bird’s eggs clustered in their own separate nest, as seen here. His unique sculptures are made primarily of fossilized whalebone. It is a difficult material to work with, as it is an extremely hard yet delicate substance. Karoo mastered this challenging medium. Many of his sculptures were said to emulate his personality, which was exuberant, humourous, spiritual and full of enthusiasm. Some of his depictions of birds - a subject he loved to carve - appear throughout his exhibition catalogues. The most similar to this work are referenced below.

Note: Dempsey Bob, an artist of mixed TahItan and Tlingit First Nations descent, was born in 1948 in the Tahltan village of Telegraph Creek. Working primarily as a sculptor, Dempsey Bob creates masks, bowls, and totems that include intricate patterns and designs that both preserve and celebrate traditional Tahltan and Tlingit cultures and styles. Bob apprenticed under the late Haida artist Freda Diesing, who was instrumental in the revival of Northwest Coast art in the 1960s. In 2006, Bob helped to found the Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Arts to carry on the legacy of his mentor. He boasts a multitude of group and solo exhibitions and his works are featured in a number of prominent collections, including the Canadian Museum of History (Gatineau, QC), Smithsonian Institution (Washington, D.C.), Canada House (London, UK), and National Museum of Ethnology (Suita, JP). Dempsey Bob was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2013, “for his dedication to the preservation of Tahltan-Tlingit artistry as a master carver and mentor to a new generation of artists.”

Provenance: Private collection, Detroit, MI, USA Private collection, Toronto, ON Exhibited: Davidialuk 1977, Marybelle Myers, ed., La Fédération des Coopératives du Nouveau-Québec, 1977, illustrated exh. cat., “Foreword Davidialuk of Povungnituk: Myth-Maker” $10,000—15,000

Note: In 1977, La Fédération des Coopératives du Nouveau-Québec organized Davidialuk 1977. Although it was not planned as such, the exhibition became a “posthumous celebration of Davidialuk, the artist.” The catalogue features a foreword by Ian G. Lindsay, written shortly before the artist’s death in 1976. This work is illustrated on the adjacent page of Lindsay’s foreword, which reads as follows: FOREWORD Davidialuk of Povungnituk: Myth-Maker Born in 1910, Davidialuk – hunter, raconteur and artist – has lived intimately with the land all his life. By image and word, the memories of everyday events experienced by the hunter of yesterday are the stuff of his creativity. Nothing is too small or unworthy of notice. Pre-eminently, his themes dwell on survival: of man in conflict with man; man in conflict with animal; man in conflict with nature; woman’s despair at the loss of her mate; and awe of the supernatural. Little of the tranquil is considered – nature and man seldom rest. Hand-in-hand with personal myth-making, he recalls the common legends of the people: the northern lights that decapitate him who whistles at them: the eagle and his human wife; the giant kayakman who strides the land, dwarfing the people; the spirit Katyutayuuq in the shape of a human head with breasted cheeks and vagina-clefted chin who propels herself on cloven feet; and not least the ubiquitous sea-woman simply described by Davidialuk as “half-fish”. As the animals share with man the same problems of survival, Davidialuk presents them also in conflict or stress. Not for him the portrait of the handsome beast and the elegant bird. He prefers the apprehensive caribou rising from its haunches; the loon fiercely protecting eggs and young, or swimming upstream – muscles taut; the loaded pack-dog aiding the adventure of man and on the supernatural level, sometime helper of the spiritbird woman. A realist and story-teller, his carvings and prints are a cornerstone of the record of a hunting people. With anecdote or elaborate tale, he bears the Eskimo tradition of the respected and beloved raconteur, conservator of racial wisdom, history and myth. Fountain of ancient lore, Davidialuk is one of the last of the myth-makers. As he and others like him fade into time past, his work will, in celebration of a way of life departed, become even larger than life itself. Ian G. Linday July, 1976 Explorations of conflict and narrative are in full bloom in this Davidialuk work. The believed subject for this piece is the story of Katyutayuuq invading on six figures in a snow house. The myth, as told by Davidialuk, is as follows,  "The stories of the first people of long ago went like this: Some migrants were travelling this day leaving one lot of them behind. In the night, while it was dark, those who were left behind were entered upon by big Katyutayuuq. When it came in, the big Katyutayuuq said, “He is mine, he is mine, he is mine.” [i.e. mine to eat]. Big Brown, Big Stomach, Short Throat, Big Daughter, Big Tail, and Big Ptarmigan (the inmates of the snow house) those ones were come in upon [by the big Katyutayuuq]. The big Katyutayuuq was scratched by the One-Who-Says-‘Uriu’ [the call of the ptarmigan]. The One-Who-Says-‘Uriu’ scratched a long time, almost all night long. Big Katyutayuuq’s face was all mangled up. Because it was mangled, it went outside during the night. Then they sat up frightened all night long, not going out even when it became dawn. Only when it was fully day did they go out, for they were afraid of the big Katyutayuuq with its great big head and breasts on the cheeks, two big ones. So the story goes. That’s all; I stop. Unikkaatuat sanaugarngnik atyingualiit Puvirngniturngmit. Eskimo stories from Povungnituk, Quebec, Zebedee Nungak & Eugene Y. Arima, National Museum of Canada, Ottawa, 1969, p. 37 From a singular stone mass, Davidaluk actualizes this legend of violence. In the centre, the enormous head of the Katyutayuuq enters through the snow house wall. A man lunges forward, seemingly to rake the cheeks of the intruder. At one end, four men are locked in close embrace. Their limbs twist and emerge amongst each other in frenzy. The unsettled positions of these bedmates describe a chaotic moment and serves to heighten the drama of the invading Katyutayuuq. Contrastingly, the woman to the immediate flank of the disruptive spirit concentrates on tending the kudlik before her, seemingly unengaged or unaware of the intrusion. The result is a scene of immediacy and intensity that is typical of Davidialuk’s great narrative sculptures. Here, there is a powerful tension between his subjects’ agonizing qualities – man in conflict with the spirit world– and a viewer’s pleasure at the extraordinary qualities of the stone work.

His unique style of carving in no way diminishes the strong emotive properties of this piece. Easily one of the largest works on record by the artist, this piece has mass in addition to height which lends to its inherent expressiveness. John Kavik’s body of work includes several portrayals of the solitary male figure. This work, with its roughly formed features, expresses a sense of thoughtfulness or dismay.

An approximation of the story reads as follows: A young girl refused to be married and instead every evening she would sing outside of the tent, “From the lake, O penis, come out! From the lake, O penis, come out!” Then a [mere] penis appeared. She sat down upon it, and she herself copulated with it. At the dawn of the day she went home. $700—1,000

Note: This work was acquired directly from the artist while he was in the Yellowknife Correctional Institute in early 1975. Henry was known for his highly realistic depictions of animals that possessed the accuracy and elegance of form only a great hunter could express through stone. This sculpture of an animated walrus is a superb example of Henry’s skill and begs to be viewed in person at all angles.

By bidding at auction, bidders are bound by those Conditions and Glossary, as amended by any oral announcement or posted notices, which together form the contract of sale between the successful bidder (buyer), Waddington’s™ and the consignor (seller) of the lot.

Condition of Lots All of the items are to be considered, unless otherwise noted in the description, in good condition. The definition of “good” when used in reference to condition, describes an object as having had no major damage or repair but as with the nature of the material, may show minor surface wear, discolouration etc., which indicates the acceptable wear that the piece may acquire with age. If you are particular about minor flaws, you should examine the pieces in person or have our staff answer any questions before bidding. Sizes are approximate. It is the sole responsibility of the bidder to

Your number will identify you if you are the successful bidder. You will be responsible for all lots purchased on your bidding number. Banking information may be requested by Waddington’s™.

The Auctioneer may also execute bids on behalf of the consignor to protect the reserve. The reserve is the confidential minimum price the seller is willing to accept for his or her property, below which it will not be sold.

Payment Payment for purchases must be by cash, INTERAC direct debit (Cdn clients in person only), certified cheque (U.S. & Overseas not applicable), travelers cheque, bank draft, electronic transfer (fee applies), VISA or Mastercard (up to $25,000).

Conditions Of Sale

1. All lots are sold “AS IS”. Any description issued by the auctioneer of an article to be sold is subject to variation to be posted or announced verbally in the auction room prior to the time of sale. While the auctioneer has endeavoured not to mislead in the description issued, and the utmost care is taken to ensure the correct cataloguing of each item, such descriptions are purely statements of opinion and are not intended to constitute a representation to the prospective purchasers and no warranty of the correctness of such description is made. An opportunity for inspection of each article is offered prior to the time of sale. No sale will be set aside on account of lack of correspondence of the article with its description or its reproduction, if any, whether colour or black & white. Some lots are of an age and/or nature which preclude their being in pristine condition and some catalogue descriptions make reference to damage and/or restoration. The lack of such a reference does not imply that a lot is free from defects nor does any reference to certain defects imply the absence of others. Frames on artwork are not included as part of purchase or condition. It is the responsibility of prospective purchasers to inspect or have inspected each lot upon which they wish to bid, relying upon their own advisers, and to bid accordingly. 2. Each lot sold is subject to a premium of 20% of the successful bid price of each lot up to and including $50,000 and 15% on any amount in excess of $50,000 as part of the purchase price.

The auctioneer has the right to refuse any bid and to advance the bidding at his absolute discretion. The auctioneer reserves the right not to accept and not to reject any bid. Without limitation, any bid which is not commensurate with the value of the article offered, or which is merely a nominal or fractional advance over the previous bid may not be recognized. 6. Each lot may be subject to an unpublished reserve which may be changed at any time by agreement between the auctioneer and the consignor. The auctioneer may bid, or direct an employee to bid, on behalf of the consignor as agreed between them. In addition, the auctioneer may accept and submit absentee and telephone bids, to be executed by an employee of the auctioneer, pursuant to the instructions of prospective purchasers not in attendance at the sale. 7. The highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer for any lot shall be the buyer and such buyer shall forthwith assume full risk and responsibility for the lot and must comply with such other Conditions of Sale as may be applicable. If any dispute should arise between bidders the auctioneer shall have the absolute discretion to designate the buyer or, at his option, to withdraw any disputed lot from the sale, or to re-offer it at the same or a subsequent sale. The auctioneer’s decision in all cases shall be final.

3. Unless exempted by law, the buyer is required to pay Harmonized Sales Tax on the total purchase price including the buyer’s premium. For international buyers, taxes are not applicable when purchases are shipped out of country. Items shipped out of Ontario, the buyer is required to pay taxes as per the tax status of that province, whether it HST or GST (Goods and Services Tax).

8. Immediately after the purchase of a lot, the buyer shall pay or undertake to the satisfaction of the auctioneer with respect to payment of the whole or any part of the purchase price requested by the auctioneer, failing which the auctioneer in his sole discretion may cancel the sale, with or without re-offering the item for sale.

The buyer shall not become the owner of the lot until paid for in full. Items must be removed within 10 days from the date of sale , after which storage charges may be incurred. 10. Each lot purchased, unless the sale is cancelled as above, shall be held by the auctioneer at his premises or at a public warehouse at the sole risk of the buyer until fully paid for and taken away. 11. Notwithstanding condition no. 1, if the buyer, prior to removal of a lot, makes arrangements satisfactory to the auctioneer for the inspection of such lot by a fully qualified person acceptable to the auctioneer to determine the genuineness or authenticity of the lot, to be carried out promptly following the sale of the lot, and if, but only if, within a period of 14 days following the sale a written opinion of such person is presented to the auctioneer to the effect that the lot is not genuine or authentic, accompanied by a written request by the buyer for rescission of the sale, then the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the sale price refunded to the buyer. 12. Payment for purchases must be by cash, INTERAC direct debit (Cdn clients in person only), certified cheque (U.S. & Overseas not applicable), travelers cheque, bank draft, electronic transfer (fee applies), and VISA or Mastercard (up to $25,000). As Waddington's requires written authorization for all credit card purchases, credit cards must be presented in person by the cardholder and therefore cannot be accepted over the telephone. However, fax authorization arrangements can be made. 13.

affected, and in such case the original buyer shall be responsible to the auctioneer and the consignor for: (a) any deficiency in price between the re-sale amount and the amount to have been paid by the original buyer; (b) any reasonable charge by the auctioneer for the storage of such articles until payment and removal by the subsequent buyer; and (c) the amount of commission which the auctioneer would have earned had payment been made in full by the original buyer. 14. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make all arrangements for insuring, packing and removing the property purchased and any assistance by the auctioneer or his servants, agents or contractors, in packing or removal shall be rendered as a courtesy and without any liability to them. 15. The auctioneer acts solely as agent for the consignor and makes no representation as to any attribute of, title to, or restriction affecting the articles consigned for sale. Without limitation, the buyer understands that any item bought may be affected by the provisions of the Cultural Property Export Act (Canada). 16. The auctioneer reserves the right to refuse admission to the sale or to refuse to recognize any or all bids from any particular person or persons at any auction.
