Overview:Kiugak Ashoona - This is a magnificently illustrated retrospective of the work of one of the world's leading Inuit artists, Kiugak Ashoona. Kiugak Ashoona has the longest artistic career of any living Cape Dorset artist and is one of the most recognized Inuit artists in the world today. Born in 1933, the son of renowned Inuit artist Pitseolak Ashoona and grandson of a highly respected Inuit shaman, Kiugak Ashoona began his own prodigious artistic career as a child, carving walrus tusks which his family would use to trade for goods. In the beginning his subjects and style were realistic but, after marrying the daughter of a powerful Shaman in the late 1950s, his work became infused with an awareness of Inuit mythology and shamanism. Today his work is celebrated for its dramatic power and formal beauty. This magnificently illustrated volume is the first retrospective monograph Kiugak Ashoona's work, and features a study of his original drawings as well as interviews conducted with the artist.
