Graham, Kathleen M.
Arctic Whiplash
1979

Toronto artist Kathleen Margaret (K. M.) Graham travelled to Cape Dorset (Kinngait), Nunavut, several times in the 1970s. She felt that the place artistically brought her back to landscape. In her paintings and drawings, the contour of surrounding hills and northern lights against the sky were translated into vibrant gestural lines in space, what she called “Whiplash.”._
