Northern Lights.mn says
In a studio practice that combines a stunning array of media --collage, painting, installation, photography, textiles, performance and video--Wendy Red Star (Crow) takes on the complex subjects of colonialism, Native history, commodification and representation. Through the construction of fictional worlds that she photographs in saturated color, to installations that combine artefacts with altered historical imagery, to abstracted prints, Red Star’s work challenges the stereotypical images we often see of Native life in contemporary and historic popular culture. Employing humor and sincerity in equal measure, her work generates new entrance points into conversation about difficult subjects.

Red Star grew up on the Crow Reservation in Montana, and currently lives and works in Portland, OR. Her work is the subject of recent exhibitions at the Portland Art Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Presented in partnership with Northern Lights.mn, NACDI/All My Relations Gallery and Two Rivers Gallery.
