When reknowned Canadian Artist Kenojuak Ashevak died in 2013, she left behind a rich legacy.
Her iconic images like Enchanted Owl helped put Inuit art on the international map.
Now, an exhibition titled Kenojuak Ashevak 1927-2013 is underway at Feheley Fine Arts in Toronto, Ontario showcasing everything from Ashevak’s recent works to her earlier creations.
“Her style right from the very beginning was so unique,” Pat Feheley, the director of Feheley Fine Arts, says.
“She just had an inherent sense of balance. The compositions are always fully resolved and then within them the colour just sings.
“It’s something that very few artists have.”
The exhibition runs until July 19th.
