The Painting Issue  

Paint is one of the oldest artistic mediums, but is rarely associated Inuit artists. Bringing together formal elements with narrative conventions, artists have employed their canvas to address notions of memory, history, identity and more.

Featuring the dreamy oil paintings of Megan Kyak-Monteith, a roundtable with Heather Campbell, Bronson Jacque, Aija Komangapik and Darcie Bernhardt, an examination of arctic landscape that juxtaposes Niap and the Group of Seven’s Frederick Varley, 5 arctic muralists and more, the Painting issue blends together the expansive realms of this little-celebrated medium.
