Note: “In Luke Iksiktaaryuk we return to an artist whose interest is in the life of the traditional community. Detail and motion are kept to a minimum in his figure groups which become skeletal, evocative visions of life as it was. They are frozen in time and space.” Helga Goetz, The People Within, exh. cat., Art Gallery of Ontario, 1976, The Art of Baker Lake, p. IV
