Description

Germaine Arnaktauyok is one of the Canadian North's most prolific and recognizable artists. In this book, she tells the story of her life in her own words: her "very traditional Inuk life" growing up in Nunavut at a camp near Igloolik, and her experiences later in a residential school in Chesterfield Inlet; her education as an artist in Winnipeg and Ottawa; and her return to the North, where she continues to create drawings, etchings, and illustrations that have been featured in museums and galleries worldwide. She also provides commentary on several of her works, offering a seldom seen perspective on her inspiration and process. Featuring over one hundred full-colour reproductions of Germaine Arnaktauyok's fascinating pieces from throughout her career, this beautiful book provides an in-depth look at one of the world's most important artists.

Editorial Reviews

“. . . [P]rints and etchings of Germaine Arnaktauyok, 68, are among the most distinctive of any Inuit artist. A new book, My Name is Arnaktauyok: The Life and Art of Germaine Arnaktauyok, combines many of those refined images with her biography.”


“. . . [T]he dazzling volume – size, layout, design are all so perfect – is both a testimony of resilience, and a triumphant exhibit of artistic excellence.”
