kwayask ê-pimohtêyân (I Walk the Line)

Mixed media collage on cardboard, 2019.

Artist talk at Contemporary Calgary as part of the Collider residency involved two storm flashlights to view the work in the dark. Collage materials for this work include: cowboy western novels such as The Nameless Breed, alcohol packaging, Playboy tobacco ads, and Time Magazine cutouts. All ad and reading material was scavenged from the years 1952 (my white foster father's birth year), and 1993 (my year of birth).
