Yesterday

In his 2008 review of the print release, published in Inuit Art Quarterly, gallerist Robert Kardosh noted that “ ‘Yesterday’ (from the Beatles’ song) is tinged with nostalgia, since vinyl LPs are as rare in Nunavut as they are elsewhere.” Nine Works by Seven Artists was a supplemental print folio for spring/summer 2008. Created by a younger generation of Cape Dorset graphic artists – most of whom are children and grandchildren of the first printmakers – many of these comprise images from present-day Inuit realities using unconventional framing that gives a cinematic feel to the works. An example can be seen in the close cropping, and strong diagonal lines found in this print.
