April 20, 2012 Earlier this month, Arviat artist Lucy Tasseor passed away during a time in which the Art Gallery of Ontario had a featured exhibition of her works on display, and she will always be remembered for her distinctive minimalistic carvings.

In 1934, she was born in Manitoba and over time eventually moved to Arviat where her early carvings of animals were replaced by figurative work.  Her themes were primarily of mother and child as well as family and community.  

While her greatest influence was her grandfather's stories, she allowed the material to dictate its natural shape as the inspiration for its final form .

Her work has been exhibited internationally and throughout Canada in major collections.

The AGO's exhibition in Toronto continues through to June 3, 2012.

Her remarkable individuality as an artist will be missed.

We welcome you to view her work and biography through our Inuit and/or Artist Biographies link.
