Isaci Etidloie

Isaci Etidloie was born on November 15, 1972. He comes from a family of well-known artists from cape Dorset, the most art productive community on Baffin Island, Nunavut. Isaci is the son of Cape Dorset carver Etulu Etidloie known primarily, for his lovely loons mounted on either stone, or a piece of caribou antler, and the grandson of renowned graphic artists Etidlooie and Kingmeata Etidloie. His uncle Kelly is also a talented sculptor, mostly known for his lively carvings of narwhals. Isaci is a very gifted young artist with a tremendous amount of potential. Like his father, Isaci likes to carve birds, but he is equally interested in portraying human figure and mythological imagery, and that is where his great technical control in depicting the movement and proportions is best represented. Isaci takes great care in choosing the stone. His carvings are made of finest serpentine of varying green shades with gold veining, smoothed and polished to best exhibit the beauty of the stone. Serpentine is a metamorphic rock found on Baffin Island. It is a very hard stone with a composition similar to Jade.
