About artist/note:

“Indeed, even within an overall ‘Kivalliq aesthetic’ , Miki’s art stands out for its predilection to abstraction and stylization. It is not surprising, therefore, that the greatest appreciation for him is found in an audience accustomed to the paradigm of modern European sculpture of the type produced by Constantin Brancusi or Henry Moore.”
