From the first release of prints at the Sanavik Cooperative in Qamani'tuaq (Baker Lake) in 1970 comes this raw and forceful 1969 print by Jessie Oonark. Seemingly a world away from the refined abstraction of Women, or Day Spirit printed the same year, the image Ice Fishing has a decidedly experimental character, exhibiting the spatially fractured image plane of earlier works by the artist such as the 1961 stonecut People of the Inland.
