…in a Jim Denomie painting. Whereas artists might be tempted to make American Indians appear good looking, noble, virtuous—Jim Denomie doesn’t. You’ll see. Here is a guy who is very free with his images. Whatever he’s thinking about flows freely in paint, and it evolves and develops. That is quite a talent and a gift. His subject matter might be rated ‘PG’ requiring parental guidance no matter how old you are. He will be here at Tamástslikt this coming Saturday, May 21, 1pm, a free public program brought to you by Crow’s Shadow Institute. http://www.crowsshadow.org/stories/139 You can go to http://www.smm.org/anthropology/denomie/
to view a Science Museum of Minnesota interview in which Jim Denomie talks about his painting, Non-Negotiable. It’s a wee bit disappointing that he doesn’t have a “Fargo” accent.
