KENOJUAK ASHEVAK, C.C.. R.C.A. (1927-2013)
"I just take these things out of my thoughts, and out of my imagination, and I don't really give any weight to the idea of its being an image of something. In other words, I am not trying to show what anything looks like in the material world.
I am just concentrating on placing it down on paper in a way that is pleasing to my own eye, whether it has anything to do with subjective reality or not. And that is how I have tried to make my images and that is still how I do it and I haven't really thought about it in any other way than that. That is just my style, and that is the way I started and that is the way I am today." - from an interview with Jean Blodgett, 1980
