Five colours used in this interpretation of a bright golden raven with orange-tipped feather fanning out behind. “In the 2013 Cape Dorset collection, there were seven Kenojuak prints and they are strongly assured in their design considering she was frail and infirm, lying on her stomach on a mattress in her living room to produce the drawings they’re based on. There’s still an energy brought out in taut lines and symmetries, and her trademark palette and stylization of the natural world, with a focus on birds, is as vibrant as ever. Fine Feathers as an example of an abiding joy present in Kenojuak’s oeuvre: “This bird is proud of itself displaying all its feathers boldly and brightly. It is saying ‘I’m here, look at me.’”
Kenojuak Ashevak was only able to sign two of the seven prints issued in this collection before she passed. This print is already signed posthumously by Kenojuak’s daughter Silaqqi Ashevak
