The rich and magical landscape surrounding Kangiqsujuaq, situated in a valley surrounded by majestic mountains, is the source of inspiration for artist Raymond Martin’s latest body of work.
This community is nestled in northern Québec, about 10 km from the Hudson Strait, with a population of 600-700.
The area is abundant with natural beauty, mussels to harvest in the winter, and wildlife including belugas, polar bears, caribou, and gyrfalcons.
