Inuit Lady: Originale kunst plakater inspireret af den grønlandske kultur og flora.

 

Inuit Lady Ulu Flora serie – Made in Greenland, en forkærlighed for den grønlandske kultur og blomster med et moderne twist.

 

Inuit Lady serien giver et frisk moderne pust på de traditionelle grønlandske kulturelle elementer såsom inuit kvindekniven ulu’en, hårknolden og kamikkerne, kombineret med kunstnerens forkærlighed for blomster.

 

Den grønlandske kunstner, Maria Panínguak` Kjærulff, (grønlandsk navn: ”søde lille datter”,) har en baggrund i Fine Arts fra NSCAD University, Halifax og Cooper Union School of Art, New York. Maria har udviklet den unikke serie af Inuit Ladies med akvarelfarver, som skaber et frisk og farverigt grafisk udtryk.

 

Ulu’en, den traditionelle grønlandske kvindekniv, var sammen med håndværksmæssigt talent, et nødvendigt overlevelsesredskab i den gamle inuit livsstil. Ulu designet varierer i forskellige dele af Grønland. De tre grundlæggende designs er del af Inuit Lady Ulu Flora serien med ulu designs fra: Sydvest- (Kitaa), Nordvest- (Thule), og Østgrønland (Tunu).

 

Ligesom ulu’en, varierer den traditionelle grønlandske nationaldragt i udtryk i hver region. Inuit kamikkerne (skindstøvlerne) i serien, er hver fra deres repræsentative del af Grønland.

Inuit Lady: Original art posters inspired by the Greenlandic culture and flora.

 

Inuit Lady Ulu Flora series – Made in Greenland, a love for the Greenlandic culture and flora with a modern twist.

 

The Inuit Lady series plays a modern take on the Greenlandic cultural items such as the traditional inuit women’s knife, the ulu, the inuit lady hair tied in a bun, and the traditional kamiks. Alongside the artist’s love for flowers.

 

The Greenlandic artist, Maria Panínguak` Kjærulff, (Greenlandic name: ”sweet little daughter”,) has a background in Fine Arts from NSCAD University, Halifax and Cooper Union School of Art, New York. Maria has developed the unique series of Inuit Ladies using watercolors, as they create a rich, vivid and graphic look.

 

The ulu, the traditional Greenlandic women’s knife, along with good sewingskills, was a survival tool in the inuit life style. The ulu designs vary in different parts of Greenland. The main three designs are part of theInuit Lady Ulu Flora series, with the ulu designs from: Southwest (Kitaa), Northwest (Thule), and East of Greenland (Tunu).

 

As well as the ulu’s, the traditional Greenlandic costumes also varies in each region. The inuit kamiks (boots) in the series, are each from their represented areas of Greenland.
