Marion Tuu'Luuq


MARION TUU'LUUQ (1910-2002), E2-98, Baker Lake
UNTITLED (PEOPLE AND ANIMALS), stroud, thread, embroidery floss, signed in syllabics, 55" x 57" — 139.7 x 144.8 cm.

Est. $12,000/18,000

Note: “Tuu’luq’s...artistic vision… celebrates the eternal recurrence of life and the conviction that what the Inuit dread most –extinction- will not occur. We see this in the mythological landscapes that she creates, brimming with Inuit, animals, vegetation and spirits. It is a landscape of memory, memorialized in a contemporary aesthetic visual statement that reaffirms the essence of her ‘Inuitness’ with impunity.”
Marion Tuu’luq, National Gallery of Canada, 2002, Marie Bouchard, Pg. 19
