Tunirrusiangit: Kenojuak Ashevak and Tim Pitsiulak

Kenojuak Ashevak shot to fame when Canada Post put The Enchanted Owl, a print of a black and red plumed nocturnal bird, on a postage stamp in 1970. Other animal prints by the magic marker-wielding “grandmother of Inuit art” are exhibited alongside work by her nephew, Tim Pitsiulak.

The enchanting menagerie includes Pitsiulak’s Swimming Bear, a polar bear whose white limbs shine through a pool of India ink, and Ashevak’s Bountiful Bird, a fowl with  a fan of Medusa-like heads.
