Spring Landscape

2011
Category: 
Working from a photograph as well as his memory, Pitsiulak presents here an epic view of Tikira, the red cliffs located west of Cape Dorset. The work marks a well-known route to hunting grounds past Luna Bay and the outpost camp of Cape Dorset artist Kiugak Ashoona. It is interesting to note that while a recent focus on landscape in Inuit art may be related to geopolitical issues across the North, this depiction takes its significance from the long-established connection Inuit have had and maintain with their local environment.
