Kenojuak Ashevak C.C., R.C.A.,, ᑭᓄᔭᐊ ᐊᓯᕗ



sugar-lift etching, aquatint, hand-painted by Beatriz Sobrado Sáman, 2011, 14/50, measurements reflect plate, unframed

24" x 31" — 61 x 78.7 cm.

Works from this exhibition were created via sugar-lift etching, a novel print-making method to Inuit artists at this time. A liquid comprised of India ink, Ivory Snow and Gum Arabic, and corn syrup was poured or painted directly on to the etching plate. A white ground was used to create a painterly resist. The result of this process created bold and looser images. “Produced in collaboration with southern artists/printmakers Harold Klunder and Beatriz Sobrado Sámano, these works offer a brilliant reinterpretation of Kenojuak’s classic iconic style.”
“Sweet Innovation: Sugar-Lift Etchings by Tony Anguhalluq, Kenojuak Ashevak, Jamasie Pitseolak and Jutai Toonoo,” The Marion Scott Gallery, June 18 - July 30, 2011
