Elisapee Ishulutaq’s Yesterday and Today

Elisapee Ishulutaq records the intimate details of everyday life as she has lived it. Her use of multiple perspectives, employing frontal, profile, and bird’s eye view in the same image, is also characteristic, and these unexpected shifts add interest and liveliness to her detailed scenes. One of the first artists to embrace the use of oil sticks, Ishulutaq was commissioned by the WAG in 2014 to create this mural that reveals the scope and innovation of her work.
