Sea Hunt
oil on canvas | 12" x 10"

In this painting Marie Claire presents us with a traditional scene of Inuit hunters at work. Discipline and skill are illustrated here simply as a way of life. Her cool and limited color pallet helps to create a sense of stillness and isolation, adding to the admirable perseverance of the hunters. The figures’ rhythmic shapes are the only disruption in this calm composition reminding the viewer of the hunters’ desolate surroundings.
