About the Exhibition:
Over the last three decades, Arthur Short Bull has produced over 17 series of watercolor paintings that considers the history and mystery of the landscape in which he resides.
From Pine Ridge, South Dakota to most recently La Veta, Colorado, Short Bull’s works hold the quiet but what can feel like ominous moments of the western landscape.
This exhibition is a selection of work that considers Short Bull’s recurring figure of Winyan Tate, or “Wind Woman.”
Introduced in the early 90’s, when reflecting on the horrors of the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre, Short Bull integrates her to often acknowledge and carry the memory and honor of the Indigenous lives lost by the brutalities of the colonial west.
