Artist Statement

Lakota artist Sarah Rowe confronts issues regarding self-identity and exploitation, and re-imagines traditional Native American symbology and dream images to fit the narrative of today’s cultural landscape. Drawing from skewed imagery in storybooks and history books, in conjunction with images from historical winter counts, Sarah projects her vision and experience into the mix with an offbeat enchantment. Rowe's imagined landscapes are bold and vibrant, containing a shape shifting bestiary layered in tales both familiar and strange.
