JESSIE OONARK, O.C., R.C.A. (1906-1985)
Estate of W.A. Ross MacFadden, Toronto, ON
Dogs from 1970 is a delightfully simple and yet energetic composition by Oonark. The raucous animals appear in a roughly circular composition, their fur-clad bodies defined in stenciled speckles of grey ink. Minute hard-edged accents appear only to define the bristling ears of the upper canine.
Government of Northwest Territories, Baker Lake prints/estamps 1971, Ottawa, Ontario: Canadian Arctic Producers Limited, 1971. pl. 10.
