The following works, made between 2001 and 2010, give an overview of Annie Pootoogook’s short but remarkable career. Annie’s drawings have expanded the place of Inuit art in Canadian contemporary art history. Her work was influenced by the places where she lived, the people she worked with, the world she took in through the media, and her intimate experiences. This selection of key works gives an overview of her drawings, from her early views of interiors in her community of Kinngait, Nunavut, to glimpses into her later life as an internationally renowned artist.
