Elias Semigak

Elias Semigak is a young Inuit carver, born in Nain, Labrador in 1980. In his youth he liked to draw and paint. Elias began carving in his late teens as he watched his father carve small animal figures in stone. He experimented with wood and then started carving small figures of his own in soapstone. "It was harder work," he says, "but I liked the idea of bringing life out of the stone."  The subjects and the sizes he sculpts are as varied as the stone he uses. His sculptures whether small or large are often many-sided and combine multiple animal and human forms, sometimes cradled in a hand. He enjoys experimenting with a variety of stones from soapstones to marble to the very hard anorthosite (granite-labradorite) from his northern coastal home. "I look at a stone and let my imagination go and my hands just follow," he explains. Collectors find that they are drawn to this carver and his work as they meet him at various shows, or encounter his work in galleries and online.
