Victoria Grey

Victoria Grey made her first sculpture when she was 14. Her mother had taught her how to sew at a young age and then she was able to make tapestries. Her biological father, Joseph Angma Snr., was a well known carver from the 50’s to the 80’s. Victoria Grey, during her career, was privileged to work with famous print masters in Cape Dorset, Nunavut, as well as having the chance to travel internationally. Inspired by fauna and flora, bshe seeks simple and elegant shapes with rare colors. Often, the repetition of a motif plays a strategic pictorial role to infuse motion into her picturesque scenes.
«The Qarjuq is still used today and is used as a traditional hunting tool. Qilautjautik is used in Qaggiq in a traditional communal igloo, at the heart of the igloo cluster. Today, these are still very much the main meeting places.»
