Canada lost one of its most celebrated artists last week with the passing of Kenojuak Ashevak.
Ashevak died on Tuesday at the age of 85 at her home in the community of Cape Dorset in Canada’s eastern Arctic territory of Nunavut.
Her career spanned decades and her iconic works depicting Arctic animals and wildlife came to define a generation of Inuit artists living and working in the North.
To learn more about Ashevak’s life and legacy, I recently spoke with Ashevak’s longtime friend and art dealer Pat Feheley, director of Feheley Fine Arts in Toronto, Ontario.
