‘Rearing Caribou’ by Quvianaqtuk Pudlat – Inuit Art – Cape Dorset 2018 print collection by Dorset Fine Arts, presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: No condition to report.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Like horses, rearing occurs when a caribou “stands up” on its hind legs with the forelegs off the ground. Rearing may be linked to fright, aggression, excitement, disobedience, pain, when acting in aggression, or if they need to strike at a threat in front of them.
This is gorgeous composition of a caribou in the process of rearing in reaction to some external trigger. In intense “blood” red with dark foggy background, the dark caribou stands out diagonally. Though printed in Etching & Chine Collé technique, looking close at the caribou, it gives the appearance of a stonecut. Strong dark lines define the body of the caribou with focus on ribcage and chest areas of the animal.
