“The night sky is what inspires me to look at the details and see what surrounds me. My thought forms in nature, the northern lights, the way they dance is what inspires me.”
—Eva Kudluk (Grade 8, Jaanimmarik School, Kuujjuaq, Quebec)
Scottish-born Canadian artist Jock Macdonald (1897-1960) was a member of the famed group of artists known as the Painters Eleven, and was inspired by a combination of influences that included philosophy, mathematics, and natural forms, as seen in his depictions of celestial bodies. He was friends with many members of the Group of Seven.
