Ken Kirkby. A Painter’s Quest for Canada
by Goody Niosi
When Ken Kirkby unveiled his painting, Isumataq in Parliament on March 28, 1992, he had to make do with a 25-foot model and the first four panels of the painting itself. The original, at 152' long and 12' high would not fit into the building. But even the model brought tears to the
eyes of the 301 members of Parliament and senators gathered there.
