MONTHLY ARTIST SPOTLIGHT

IN MEMORIAM

Tayaraq Tunnillie

(1934-2015)
 
Kinngait (Cape Dorset), Nunavut Territory, Canada

Tayaraq was the wife of the noted master sculptor, Qavaroak (Kabubuwa) Tunnillie (1928-1993). Tayaraq was an accomplished carver in her own right and yet her sculpture was often overlooked as she lived in the shadow of the large sculptures by her renowned husband. She had exhibited since 1970 and her sculptures had been included in many international exhibitions and in several museum collections, as well as documented in many publications. She also had participated in the early drawing experiments at Cape Dorset (like this 1960/65 drawing) and has made drawings occasionally since then. This remarkable portrayal of Sedna, circa 1975, exemplifies her incredible carving skills.
