20 x 20" / Tusche Wash Painting - Black wood with off white matte
The film "Gather" illustrates how important it is for Indigenous Americans to obtain sovereignty over their food systems. Many questions surfaced as I watched this film. How can their path to better health become more fluid? What changes can be made today so Indigenous Americans can gain control over their Native agriculture and food systems? I explored these thoughts in my artwork titled "Give”. I painted soft brushstrokes that link hands with one another to create a fluid motion throughout the piece. I think solutions will open up as more films like this one are created. The stories in “Gather” are important to watch and learn how food can reconnect us to one another.
