This young man keeps appearing on my dash I am afraid he may be becoming relevant to my interests
Thomas Harold Beament
Departure for the Hunt, c.1948
From Pegasus Gallery of Canadian Art:
After retiring from the navy in 1947, Beament embarked upon a journey to live with and study Inuit peoples of Baffin Island. Along with Lawren Harris and A. Y. Jackson, he was one of the first artists to explore the Arctic, the Inuit people and their culture. It was during these trips that Beament produced the work for which he is most famous and introduced Canadians to a people that were happy living in some of the most remote locations on Earth. In 1955, he was honoured to design a ten-cent stamp with Inuit figures for Canada Post. The drawings and paintings he made at this time of the area and its people are regarded among his greatest works of art.
Departure for the Hunt recognizes a valuable time in the life cycle of the North—the excitement of the day, the dangers of the bay, and the beauty of its rhythms. Unlike Harris and Jackson, on the Arctic trips Beament saw a fragile culture and focused more on the interplay of the characters than on the grandness of the landscape. It is there as well, but as an awesome backdrop as opposed to the focal point. The warmer yellow tones play on the feeling of the moment as opposed to the bleakness of the landscape. Beament would have seen a time when the Canadian military Operation Musk-Ox had just been completed (1946). The high North was now changing from the centuries old behavioural patterns to modernisation due to new accessibility. Overall, this silkscreen is a highly composed final homage to Northern life.
on the other hand, it’s not like anyone who buys this book will feel misled.

Whatever I was doing here, I have made a note to never do it again when Skyping with students. Astronaut nightmare.

if you haven’t read them yet: go read them

that is all.
Damn you Jackymedan, in the best possible way, because I read these at work by mistake. And then after work when I was in the playground with my children I went back to the link and found there was a whole series called Fraser in chains and this appeared to be relevant to my interests and believe you me there is no more good parenting happening here tonight.
