Of note in this collection is the work of Nuna Parr, a well-known and beloved sculptor. He brings his experience and knowledge of bears to a beautiful etching and chine colle print, Confrontation (above). Once again, Ningiukulu Teevee (Floroal Transformation, below) shows her amazing story-telling abilities through heart-warming visual narratives.
As usual, the favourites in this collection will sell-out fast. As we have two copies of the whole release (Edition #5 and #40), get in touch with us to discuss your print of choice.
Since 1959 Dorset Fine Arts has released an annual collection of Inuit prints created by the artists of Kinggait (Cape Dorset), Nunavut, in the Canadian Arctic. This world-renowned selection of prints demonstrates the mastery and unique style of the Cape Dorset artists, as well as the diverse and divine inspirations of the North.
