MARION TUU'LUQ ARTIST

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 

Marie Bouchard, "American Women Artists of the Twentieth Century", 1995
