Description:
PITSEOLAK ASHOONA (1904-1983), E7-1100, CAPE DORSET TATTOOED WOMAN stonecut 1963, 33/50 unframed 26" x 24.5" — 59.1 x 59.1 cm. Note: This simple yet powerful image of an Inuit woman illustrates the artist and printmaker’’s attention to detail and artistry. There is a sense of movement evident in what would otherwise be a static portrait. This sense is facilitated not only by the tilt of the woman’’s head but by the intersecting lines of the voluminous parka, facial tattoos and features. Pitseolak describes the tradition of facial tattoos, “Many of the woman had tattoo marks on their faces and my mother had them, too. They used to do it with a needle and caribou thread soaked in oil and soot from the kudlik - the seal oil lamp. They used to pull the thread through the skin and the skin would be swollen for many days.” Inuit Women Artists, Voices from Cape Dorset , Canadian Museum of Civilization, 1994, pg. 51. Pitseolak “later identified the woman in this image as her mother; Tattooed Woman can be viewed as an homage both to her mother and to Inuit women of earlier generations.” “As one of her earliest prints, made from a graphite line drawing and not yet indicative of this lively character for which she would later be recognized, this elegant image is nonetheless one of Pitseolak’’s best known and has become an icon of Canadian art.” Christine Lalonde, Pitseolak Ashoona: Life & Work , Art Canada Institute, May 2015, ebook, pgs. 19 & 20.

The would have a long string and when they would strike the ball, it would go very far. Not too long ago, when I saw ‘nayouta,’’ that was what it was called, I was thinking that they had made it just for children. I didn’’t like how it was being played now. In those old days, everybody was lively and happy and had a lot of energy, and it was so beautiful.” Pitseolak Ashoona, as quoted in the Cape Dorset Annual Graphics Collection, 1978, p. 65-6, pl. 61
