Opening Reception April 8 1-4 PM
Madrona Gallery is pleased to present Ningiukulu Teevee's first solo exhibition in Victoria. Ningiukulu is a leading contemporary Inuit artist who has gained international recognition for her expressive drawings.
Born in Cape Dorset in 1963, Ningiukulu has become one of Kinngait Studios most celebrated artists and has established a reputation as one of the Canadian art world’s major figures. Ningiukulu is self taught and works primarily with coloured pencils and ink. Her images are derived primarily from her comprehensive knowledge of Inuit folklore, which she combines with often humorous images of westernized contemporary life in Nunavut. She was shortlisted for a Governer General's award for her book Alego in 2009. Her drawings are found in many major collections including the McMichael Collection of Canadian Art, National Gallery of Canada, Art Gallery of Ontario, Winnipeg Art Gallery and others.
Catalogue available on request. All work subject to pre-sale.
