“The White Frontier”

This was a really interesting piece to work on –  a monoprint based on the Inuit exhibit at Exeter museum – it’s part of  group entry with Double Elephant Studio for a show there. The exhibit is pretty small, but contains amazing things like waterproof parkas made entirely from seal gut, plus toys and artefacts made by Inuit people in the 19th century using tusks and bones. Nothing wasted!

Doing more research online I came to understand the ultimate impact of contact with European traders and explorers which the print I made is based on. The Inuit have lost so much, especially in the past 100 or so years.
