A Selection of Original Drawings + Prints

Kingmeata Etidlooie

(1915-1989)

Born: Near Lake Harbour, North West Territories 

(now Kimmirut, Nunavut)

 

it is hard for me to separate 

kingmeata etidlooie from the 1980’s

and the 1980’s from kingmeata etidlooie.

 

from her arrival in cape dorset

in the mid-60’s through the 1970’s

she produced incredible work.

 

but it was her work from the ‘80’s

that i’m most drawn to.

 

it’s the colors

no doubt.

 

rich in the ‘80’s pastels.

 

but it’s also the seemingly

simplistic compositions.

 

minimal and strong.

bold in their understatement.

 

we are excited to have this selection

of fierce drawings in our space.

 

alongside the amazing sculpture

of lucy tasseor tutsweetok and

mary tutsuitok –

 

it surely will be hard to top.
