Untitled ‘Chasing Geese’ by Eegyvudluk Ragee — Inuit Art from Cape Dorset 1978 original hand drawing collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: Some minor stains visible throughout the paper caused by the artist while drawing. Minor paper handling marks throughout that are mostly visible when seen at angle to light. This is common in original drawings as Inuit artists would commonly draw at home.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Another intriguing, interesting and thought provoking drawing by Eegyvudluk Ragee that I subtitled this drawing ‘Chasing Geese’. Because of other drawings by this artist one could see mysticism in this drawing. On the other hand one could perceive the lines in the middle indicating perspective of horizon where the two men give chase to the two birds ahead of them while four other birds look.
As with all other drawings by the same artist, we see that the artist is very careful in maintaining a well-balanced composition with same number of same coloured birds as well as vegetation and people on each left and right sides of the drawing.
