Marion Tuu'luq Born in Chantrey Inlet, Nunavut, 1910 Died Canada: Nunavut, Baker Lake, 22 September 2002
A favourite artist of mine is Marion Tuu'luq
She liked to use fabrics as her medium . . .simple cut out shapes put together as appliquée patterns and heavily embroidered surfaces . . . . in bright colours!
I love the simplicity of her shapes . . .the NEGATIVE SPACES around the cut out patterns . . . .below is one of her art works . . .I imagine there are many more to see online or at the National Gallery of Canada.
She is written about in this Book by
Bouchard, "American Women Artists of the Twentieth Century", 1995
