"The son of Tayaraq and master carver Qavaroak (Kabubuwa) Tunnillie, Ashevak has a style that embraces, but is distinct from, his father’s. His work embodies a fluid sense of movement and incorporates the inner nature of the particular stone. Skilled at carving in the round, Ashevak’s use of positive and negative space gives his sculptures an openness of design and a strong presence. His work was included in the 1989 “Masters of the Arctic: An Exhibition of Contemporary Inuit Masterworks,” which toured for more than a decade".
