Ningeokuluk Teevee

Cape Dorset
 
Born May 27, 1963, Ningeokuluk is the daughter of Joanasie Salomonie (deceased) and his wife, Kanajuk.  Her father, Joanasie, was much loved in Cape Dorset for his sense of humour, mischief, and compassion.  Ningeokuluk works full-time for the department of Housing in Cape Dorset, and devotes her spare time to her family and whatever time she can to her drawing, which she does at home. Her husband, Simeonie Teevee, is a musician and plays with his band at community events in Cape Dorset and at music festivals around Nunavut.

Ningeokuluk is steadily emerging as a versatile and intelligent graphic artist.  Her prints illustrate the enduring appeal of graphic simplicity and the particular strength of the stonecut studio. Her pieces are beautifully printed with their nuance of stenciled colour; they show full use of lithography’s potential, with their bold, red backgrounds and clean lines. She also does softer pieces that depict traditional Inuit legends, such as of a woman who could not have children and so adopts a caterpillar as her own and raises it in her husband’s mitt. Ningeokuluk is becoming more prolific as her experience and confidence grow, and is comfortable with both traditional and more contemporary themes and approaches.

Her past has been a tremendous influence and she is particularly inspired by legendary stories of her people.
