Her grandfather and father were said to be shamans. “While her art is predisposed towards brightness, she was by no means unaware of the darker dimensions of the Inuit experience and Inuit imagination. She had a respectable shamanic pedigree, after all, and her grandmother warned her that ‘images could come to life in the dark of the night.’ Clearly, Oonark herself took special care to breathe life into the forms of a good number of those nocturnal images.”Estimate: $3,000—5,000...

Description: JESSIE OONARK, O.C., R.C.A.

Her use of colour, whether intense or subtle, gave life to even the most ordinary of subjects. Compared to her later more abstract drawings, Welcoming Friends tells a story of day to day life. Oonark spent most of her time in camps in the Back River region where she took part in a traditional Inuit way of life. This work is an illustration of receiving visitors at her igloo; a gathering of women, perhaps showing their daughters who are in toe, how to prepare the skins for eventual sewing. There is a cheerful community feel to the image. For more information about Oonark’s drawings see, Sarah Milroy, Flashback: Jessie Oonark, Inuit Art Quarterly, Fall 2017, pages 82-95.Estimate: $2,500—3,500...

She would resist to the end saying what it was about, or she’d change her story every time you talked to her. So it was difficult to come to some sense ... as to what title really would be appropriate.’... Oonark, like other artists - particularly prolific, creative ones - has conveyed layers of meaning here that she herself is consciously unaware of.”Estimate: $5,000—7,000...

Kiviuk followed, when he came to the sea, he met a man making a fish from wood. As he finished each one, he threw it into the water. Whereupon, it would become a real fish and swim away. Kiviuk asked the fishmaker if he had seen the bird with his family. The fishmaker replied that the bird had carried them over the sea. Kiviuk wished, aloud, that he might cross the sea. The fishmaker told Kiviuk to close his ears and he would call someone. Kiviuk closed his ears. This fishmaker called and a fish came. The fishmaker instructed Kivuk to sit on the tail and ride across the sea.In this manner, Kiviuk crossed the water to the other shore. Leaping off the fish, he continued to quest for his family.”Estimate: $1,000—1,500...
