Note: “Indeed, even within an overall ‘Kivalliq aesthetic’ , Miki’s art stands out for its predeliction 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.” Norman Zepp, excerpt from Sanattiaqsimajut, Inuit Art from the Carleton University Art Gallery Collection, 2009, p. 83
