Shuvinai Ashoona: Life & Work
SHUVINAI ASHOONA: LIFE & WORK, by independent scholar and curator Nancy Campbell, focuses on this most original of northern artists. Born and based in Kinngait (Cape Dorset), Ashoona is internationally acclaimed for her mixed-media drawings combining the fantastical and the everyday. Campbell documents the artist’s personal history and working methods, and investigates her extravagantly imaginative imagery, from birthing mothers to sinking ships to multi-coloured monsters with bulging eyes, curling tentacles and blue toes.
