Artist of the moment……Thomas Sivuraq

Thomas Sivuraq is yet another fantastic modern artist from the Baker Lake, Nunavet Territory area of Canada. Born in 1941. Sivuraq is among the best Inuit sculptors at showing movement in his figures.

Price range information:  Thomas Sivuraq works mainly with stone and works range $1,000 to $15,000.

In this clip we see a wonderful sculpture of  a mother and child. I immediately thought of the great Mary Cassatt her portrayals of the same genre.

Thomas Sivuraq is married to another artist, five years his senior, Nancy Kangeryuaq. Over her lifetime she has worked a great deal with printmaking. Below some examples of Kangeryuaq’s work.
