"Mall" 2018⁠#artforsale⁠⁠'Mall' is one of nine images part of the virtual group exhibit Telling Stories at the @parrishart museum curated by David Pagel from my series 'Rise.' The exhibit was set to open in May but canceled in person due to COVID 19. You can still see the works online on the Parrish Art Museum's website and there is a great catalog with an essay on my work by @savismith⁠⁠‘Rise’ reflects upon the historical legacy of the Pequot War, King Philip’s War, and the fear of indigenous people in New England and later throughout the United States. Fear, in this instance, comes from the acknowledgment of our continued presence, not as an extinct people, but as sovereign nations who have witnessed and survived four hundred years of colonization.⁠⁠Playing with recognizable zombie film and TV show iconography, ‘Rise’ highlights parallels between the apocalyptic rising undead and popular misinformation of indigenous people as a vanished race.
