Characteristic of Oonark’s seemingly intuitive gift for visual balance, this 1972 print, I See Caribou, exhibits a delightfully off-kilter symmetry. Vibrant green U-formed arms curve upward, echoed by strangely antler-like red outcroppings, the colour of bearberry bush in which Arctic Caribou graze.
