Title

"Nothing Happened Here #2"

Description

Artist Statement:
"'Nothing Happened Here' explores the violence/non-violence of postcolonial Native American psychology. My work is a reflection of my experience and observations in my community, the Shinnecock Reservation in Southampton, New York, and specifically the burden of loss of culture through assimilation, omission of our history in school curriculum, loss of land, and economic disadvantage. The arrows act as a symbol of everlasting indigenous presence. The decision to use non-native subjects reveals a shared burden. How do we overcome this troubled past?"
