Manifest Destiny’s Child
November 20, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Join Ellsworth Gallery for the opening of Manifest Destiny’s Child, a new exhibition by artist Chaz John (Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, Mississippi Band Choctaw).
In Manifest Destiny’s Child, Chaz John uses a vibrant collection of images both real and imagined to explore the modern myth of the American frontier. The result is a body of work conveying itself through a poetic narrative of cultural iconography, raw dream images, and a personal quilt of archetypal patterns that make up the collective American psyche. In this imaginative world, the viewer will encounter references towards Western Alchemy, Indigenous Story Telling, Jungian individuation, Tattoo Flash Art, Slapstick Comedy, and other imagery both strange yet familiar.
