Aoudla Pudlat

Aoudla Pudlat

What do you think of first when you hear the word "arctic"? Polar Bears. Walrus. Narwhals. Caribou. All of the BIG names in the frozen north, right?

Allow us introduce you to Arctic birds. Migratory by nature, only 3 over-winter in the harsh environment on the tundra: Snowy owls, ravens & ptarmigans. Buntings. Loons. Sandpipers. Geese. And terns: these are just a few of the 100+ species of avian beings that live part- time in the Arctic. Typically considered a vast wasteland of ice, snow & permafrost, birds are vital to the ecology of the tundra. Pollinators, waders, hunters, & seed-carriers, birds also provide for the Inuit with eggs, meat and feathers and bones that are fashioned into tools.

Represented here in stone, textiles and on paper, we pay homage to these vital instruments of Arctic ecology.

"It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds." - Aesop

Aoudla Pudlat

In the early 1970's he began to draw highly stylized bird images--a theme which he primarily concentrates on today.  About the time Aoudla began to draw, he also began his apprenticeship in the lithography studio.  As his mastery of the printing process progressed, he proofed and also editioned many of his own works.  Now an accomplished printer, his chop appears on many of the lithographs editioned in the Cape Dorset studios... His stepfather is Oshutsiak Pudlat.

Aoudla has exhibited with the Cape Dorset Graphics collection from 1980-1989, with the exception of 1985.  As well he has participated in "Emerging Canadian Artists" in 1981.  His exhibitions also include: "Dorset Lithos '83 - A new direction", "Inuit Art at Rideau Hall '83-'84", and "Die Kunst Aus der Arktis '86".

Aoudla Pudlat has also participated in solo exhibitions such as: "Drawings by Aoudla Pudlat"  at the Elca London Gallery in Montreal, Quebec (1988), and "Aoudla Pudlat: Dessins/Drawings Canadian Guild of Crafts" Quebec in Montreal, Quebec (1989)
