Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: PARR’s works compare much with Luke Anguhadluq’s works on the rawness and direct first hand representation of a nomadic life of the Inuit. It is interesting to notice this collection of PARR images they all invoke from PARR’s memories as a hunter himself where all situations involve male hunters and animals.
Strong sharp cuts of the stone by Lukta Qiatsuq leaving a beautifully textured stonecut image of a single hunter giving chase that appear to begin their escape. The two smaller images at the bottom are interesting as they appear to be two seals, although my first impression would’ve been two dogs helping in the hunt. This may well be a detail of a larger original drawing as PARR’s images would normally fill entire paper sheets. In is interesting to begin to notice as I upload this collection of PARR images they all invoke from PARR’s memories as a hunter himself where all situations are related to hunter and animals.
