Artists
Toona Iqalik (Iquliq)

1935-2015
Baker Lake, Nunavut Territory

Toona Iqalik was born in 1935 near Baker Lake, where he lived and worked for most of his career.  With over 40 years of experience carving, he is most recognized for his rounded abstract carvings of people.  However, figures such as muskox, birds and bears were also characteristic. His children, Johnny, Louie and Camill are also well known carvers.  Since the 1960s, Toona has had numerous exhibitions across North America and the United States as well as in Europe and England.

Karel Doruyter

"Through my travels I have always been drawn to isolated places. In the past these were physical geographical parts of the world I have experienced. Now I find myself going inward, areas of spiritual and emotional isolation that I find disturbing and fascinating. I find recording the former on board or canvas much easier than the latter, but that only adds to the attraction."
