About artist/note:

"The uniqueness of Anguhadluq's drawings stems from his use of multiple perspectives, a formal device most simply applied in his animal imagery. He perceives them from different positions in space through successive moments of time. He combines these perceptions - an aerial view with a profile of the torso - causing a sense of transition and duration to arise"
