Judas Ooloolah (Ullulaq) Gjoa Haven, The Upstairs Gallery, Winnipeg, MB, exh. cat., 1987, unpaginated

“Ullulaq’s sculpture is an extension of his real world. Each piece implies a context, with one or more figures interrelating, sometimes on a base that helps to define the context. Single figures are always engaged in an action that infers a specific environment. There is a pervasive dynamism in the carved works that is revealed in body movements, gestures, and emotionally involved in their world. As in the work of his famous nephew, Karoo Ashevak, round inlaid eyes and contorted mouths contribute a high degree of expression. However Karoo’s subjects were often imaginary spirits with magico-religious significance. Ullulaq’s work, like that of his talented brother, Charlie Ugyuk, is of the real world. The reality, for him, consists of people and of human emotion.”
