Note: “Tataniq uses ... hard, black Baker Lake stone to produce imposing works. However, he transforms this material into artworks of great elegance. ...Tataniq refines his shapes, to produce works with clean, even sharp, lines.“ Pure Vision: The Keetwatin Spirit, Norman Zepp, Norman MacKenizie Art Gallery, 1986, pg. 47
