Two Rooms Inside the Iglu
‘Two Rooms Inside the Iglu’ by Jessie Oonark, RCA, OC – Inuit Art – Baker Lake 1982 print collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: Very Good condition – treated for minor discoloration and handling marks.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: three men in one room cleaning fish, four women in the entry or common area, and five more men in the second room. This iglu must be large enough to accommodate twelve people inside and none looks uncomfortably tight. The lines depicting main entrance and the lines that separate the rooms seem very straight and clean giving them impression Jessie may have used a ruler for such straight lines. There is also much attention paid to weight balance where the five people on the left are of larger proportion than all the seven people on the right and this helps maintain same attention to the entire print design equally.
The blank sheet of letter-size (8.5” x 11”) paper covering part of the image in the last picture is for size reference.
