My Daily Art
The vibrant colours, mesmerizing design, and grid of glowing faces have always drawn me into this work. In 1961, Tuu’luq and her husband, artist Luke Anguhadluq, moved to Baker Lake (Nunavut) where she became one of the first women to make wall hangings in a sewing project. A few years later, Tuu’luq began using coloured beads to create designs in clothing, and these stylized geometric patterns carried over to her wall hangings like this WAG work.
While the WAG is temporarily closed, your collection is still here for you. Stay connected with the art through daily posts from our Director & CEO, Dr. Stephen Borys.
