The figures are laid out in rows, but they are not all the same size and the larger ones are read as being nearer. Anghuhadluq uses space in another way as well. The isolation of figures in a white background represents more accurately than anything else could the vastness of the white terrain which was his home. His palette is clear and bright and he uses it with an elegance and control that make otherwise unlikely colour pairings, such as mauve and lime green, work effectively. “ Meeka Walsh, Luke Anguhadluq, Baker Lake Prints and Drawings, 1988 exhibition catalogue, The Upstairs Gallery, Winnipeg, page 2.

He perceives them from different positions in space through successive moments of time. He combines these perceptions - an aerial view with a profile of the torso - causing a sense of transition and duration to arise.” Cynthia Waye, excerpt from Sanattiaqsimajut, Inuit Art from the Carleton University Art Gallery Collection, 2009, page 92.

She has tattoo marks under her nose as well as horizontal stripes around the tops of her boots indicating she is a female figure. The design on men’s boots would go straight down in a vertical line. The black area on the face represents shadow.

The story of Natturalik was told to Kiugak by the shaman, Kiakshuk, his father Ashoona, and by many other elders in the camps where he lived. It clearly holds extraordinary significance in his art and in his imagination.” Darlene Coward Wight, Kiugak Ashoona, Stories and Imaginings from Cape Dorset, Winnipeg Art Gallery, page 114.

It is not surprising, therefore, that the greatest appreciation for him is found in an audience accustomed to the paradigm of modern European sculpture of the type produced by Constantin Brancusi or Henry Moore.” Norman Zepp, excerpt from Sanattiaqsimajut, Inuit Art from the Carleton University Art Gallery Collection, 2009, page 83. 34

When he brought drawings to the studio, he knew one of the printmakers would likely attempt to provoke him by asking rude questions about his prowess. Parr’s customary routine would be to revert to playing the old senile man, grunting a good natured acceptance of their remarks and feigning deafness. His dealings with me left quite another impression that of a man engaged in his art on many levels and appreciative of the opportunity to draw and share his world. Parr put down his pencil only a few months before his death.” Terrence Ryan, excerpt from Sanattiaqsimajut, Inuit Art from the Carleton University Art Gallery Collection, 2009, page 57.

It amazed me that, despite the tiny hut he shared with his wife and (as I remember) rambunctious son, this old man could conjure up such evocative images, cherished memories of his youth so infused with the nervous energy of that time and place that they immediately capture attention. That effect, as described by Marion Jackson, is “a balanced dialect between simplification and complexity that becomes almost hypnotic to a sensitive viewer.” Terrence Ryan, excerpt from Sanattiaqsimajut, Inuit Art from the Carleton University Art Gallery Collection, 2009, page 57.

Canadian and Inuit Fine Art Auction MONDAY, MAY 27 AT 7:00 PM

MARION TUU’LUQ TOGETHER IN SPRING ESTIMATE $20,000-30,000


Conditions of Sale 1. All lots are sold “AS IS”. Any description issued by the auctioneer of an article to be sold is subject to variation to be posted or announced verbally in the auction room prior to the time of sale. While the auctioneer has endeavoured not to mislead in the description issued, and the utmost care is taken to ensure the correct cataloguing of each item, such descriptions are purely statements of opinion and are not intended to constitute a representation to the prospective purchasers and no warranty of the correctness of such description is made. An opportunity for inspection of each article is offered prior to the time of sale. No sale will be set aside on account of lack of correspondence of the article with its description or its reproduction, if any, whether colour or black & white. Some lots are of an age and/or nature which preclude their being in pristine condition and some catalogue descriptions make reference to damage and/or restoration. The lack of such a reference does not imply that a lot is free from defects nor does any reference to certain defects imply the absence of others. Frames on artwork are not included as part of purchase or condition. It is the responsibility of prospective purchasers to inspect or have inspected each lot upon which they wish to bid, relying upon their own advisers, and to bid accordingly. 2. Each lot sold is subject to a 20% buyers premium as part of the purchase price. 3. Unless exempted by law, the buyer is required to pay Harmonized Sales Tax on the total purchase price including the buyer’s premium. For international buyers, taxes are not applicable when purchases are shipped out of country. Items shipped out of Ontario, the buyer is required to pay taxes as per the tax status of that province, whether it HST or GST (Goods and Services Tax).

6. Each lot may be subject to an unpublished reserve which may be changed at any time by agreement between the auctioneer and the consignor. The auctioneer may bid, or direct an employee to bid, on behalf of the consignor as agreed between them. In addition, the auctioneer may accept and submit absentee and telephone bids, to be executed by an employee of the auctioneer, pursuant to the instructions of prospective purchasers not in attendance at the sale. 7. The highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer for any lot shall be the buyer and such buyer shall forthwith assume full risk and responsibility for the lot and must comply with such other Conditions of Sale as may be applicable. If any dispute should arise between bidders the auctioneer shall have the absolute discretion to designate the buyer or, at his option, to withdraw any disputed lot from the sale, or to re-offer it at the same or a subsequent sale. The auctioneer’s decision in all cases shall be final. 8. Immediately after the purchase of a lot, the buyer shall pay or undertake to the satisfaction of the auctioneer with respect to payment of the whole or any part of the purchase price requested by the auctioneer, failing which the auctioneer in his sole discretion may cancel the sale, with or without re-offering the item for sale. 9. The buyer shall pay for all lots within 48 hours from the date of the sale, after which a late charge of 2% per month on the total invoice may be incurred or the auctioneer, in his sole discretion, may cancel the sale. The buyer shall not become the owner of the lot until paid for in full. Items must be removed within 10 days from the date of sale, after which storage charges may be incurred.

4. The auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any lot from sale at any time, to divide any lot or to combine any two or more lots at his sole discretion, all without notice.

10. Each lot purchased, unless the sale is cancelled as above, shall be held by the auctioneer at his premises or at a public warehouse at the sole risk of the buyer until fully paid for and taken away.

5. The auctioneer has the right to refuse any bid and to advance the bidding at his absolute discretion. The auctioneer reserves the right not to accept and not to reject any bid. Without limitation, any bid which is not commensurate with the value of the article offered, or which is merely a nominal or fractional advance over the previous bid may not be recognized.

11. Notwithstanding condition no. 1, if the buyer, prior to removal of a lot, makes arrangements satisfactory to the auctioneer for the inspection of such lot by a fully qualified person acceptable to the auctioneer to determine the genuineness or authenticity of the lot, to be carried out promptly following the sale of the lot, and if, but only if, within a period of 14

days following the sale a written opinion of such person is presented to the auctioneer to the effect that the lot is not genuine or authentic, accompanied by a written request by the buyer for rescission of the sale, then the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the sale price refunded to the buyer. 12. Payment for purchases must be by cash, INTERAC direct debit (Cdn clients in person only), certified cheque (U.S. & Overseas not applicable), travelers cheque, bank draft, electronic transfer (fee applies), and VISA or Mastercard (up to $25,000). 13. In the event of failure to pay for or remove articles within the aforementioned time limit, the auctioneer, without limitation of the rights of the consignor and the auctioneer against the buyer, may resell any of the articles affected, and in such case the original buyer shall be responsible to the auctioneer and the consignor for: (a) any deficiency in price between the resale amount and the amount to have been paid by the original buyer; (b) any reasonable charge by the auctioneer for the storage of such articles until payment and removal by the subsequent buyer; and (c) the amount of commission which the auctioneer would have earned had payment been made in full by the original buyer. 14. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make all arrangements for insuring, packing and removing the property purchased and any assistance by the auctioneer or his servants, agents or contractors, in packing or removal shall be rendered as a courtesy and without any liability to them. 15. The auctioneer acts solely as agent for the consignor and makes no representation as to any attribute of, title to, or restriction affecting the articles consigned for sale. Without limitation, the buyer understands that any item bought may be affected by the provisions of the Cultural Property Export Act (Canada). 16. The auctioneer reserves the right to refuse admission to the sale or to refuse to recognize any or all bids from any particular person or persons at any auction.
