‘Caribou Grazing’ by Luke Anguhadluq – Inuit Art – Baker Lake 1978 print collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts. Framing recommended for display.
Condition: Minor (only lightly visible) discoloration of the paper along mat coverage from previous framing. Also minor dimples in paper from paper handling. Image not affected. Very Good condition. Price reflects condition
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: enigmatic and inviting to the imagination… Typical of Luke Anguhadluq’s works it is easy to submerge into the space and the time indicated in this story: two caribou probably from a herd in migration path stop to graze in the middle of the vast space. Very interesting the use of such vast white space and more interesting the positioning of the main objects, top left quadrant, leaving bottom and right areas blank. In my opinion this further stresses movement in time and space. This might well be a hunter in hiding and can see these caribous far in the distance. So close and yet so far. There is distance to cover before a successful hunt.
