Abstracted Haudenosaunee Designs
2010-
I incorporate design work associated with my specific nation - as abstracted paintings. I want to show a sense of the complexity of Native American iconography that is lost in the representations in popular culture. I borrow from and reference Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) beadwork in my paintings to show a density of line, texture and depth. Instead of treating the designs as “traditional” I have intentionally morphed the designs to bring them into a modern context, showing the viewer that their meanings are vital, important, always changing and active. The symbols should not be fixed in time or in the past, but always evolving.
