Bart Hanna

Iglulik
 
Bart Hanna was born in 1948, in a small camp north of the Iglulik.

He works with a variety of different media indigenous to the Iglulik community. This list includes serpentine, Arctic Bay white marble, Brazilian crystalline alabaster, caribou antler, muskox horn, walrus tusk, and baleen. Bart’s sculptures usually reflect both his great imagination, as well as his influences from the spirit world. He also takes inspiration from textures; raw, rough materials, as well as soft polished stone. He is known for incorporating great detail, down to the hair, fur or feathers of the figure. The themes that Bart most frequently explores include arctic animals, drum dancing, and spirit figures often in totems.

In 1992, Bart played a small role of a drum dancer, in the movie “Shadow of the Wolf”, starring Lou Diamond Phillips and Donald Sutherland. In 2005, Bart created 23 drawings which were used for a CD-ROM program, designed for Nunavut High School students to learn about Inuit land use and way finding.

Bart has had the privilege of being an artist-in-residence at the Kipling Gallery in Woodbridge Ontario, and also at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection Gallery in Kleinburg Ontario. Bart has received grants from the Kakivak Association and the Baffin Business Development Corporation. These bursaries have made it possible for Bart to upgrade his workshop to state of the art standards.

“I try to listen to the stone more than myself. I don’t want to force it. I want to go with the stone. Naturalness of the figure is important, especially with the Sednas”

(Bart Hanna in Gunderson 2007:22)
