John Pangnark, ᔭᓐ ᐸᓇ

SPIRIT FIGURE


JOHN PANGNARK (1920-1980), ᔭᓐ ᐸᓇ, ESKIMO POINT / ARVIAT
SPIRIT FIGURE

stone

3.1 x 1.6 x 0.6 in — 8 x 4 x 1.5 cm

Note:
“Four pieces form the extra-ordinary Arviat-based artist John Pangnark in the collection and, while each, in its intensely minimalist approach, is recognisably by the same hand, each of them also represents a rather different formal solution to the subject in hand – a crouching hunter, a spirit figure and two mothers and children – and the material available to work in.

Spirit Figure is a small, thin slip of stone with the most rudimentary of faces depicted on one of the thin edges, a work quietly haunting, out of all proportion to its tiny scale. (195)

Estimate: $700—1,000
