Condition: Mild wrinkles and creases throughout. Visible create top to bottom left area of the paper, crossing vertically over the igloos. Wrinkled semi-circle 1 1/2” diameter a top of crease mentioned.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Simple and yet loaded with stories and first-hand experience by the artist of living in winter camps before creation of communities. Here, Kenojuak draws from here memories of living in winter camps during her youth bringing what could be a piece of seal to her family that a hunter might have shared with the villagers. Interesting to see that only the subject is drawn with bold colours and to preserve balance with the igloo that is only drawn with pencil, the igloo is drawn much larger in size. Perhaps at the cost distance perspective.
I think it is very interesting experience to be holding in your own hands an original piece of paper that such great artist as Kenojuak Ashevak handled, turned, twisted, drew, stored, changed, all from her house and then delivered to West Baffin Eskimo Coop to then deliver to Dorset Fine Arts and that has exchanged hands among many different galleries and art exhibits. Now available for you to proudly own…
