“Through photographic collage she illustrates some of the oral history that is prevalent among the tribes of the Southeast. While the medium she uses is very modern, her subject matter is ancient. In addition, she uses both amorphous and very literal figures, generating a multi-layered effect. In so doing, she takes iconic figures of the oral tradition, such as the deer man, and filters them through a modern lens, portraying the beauty and complexity of Indian tradition in a contemporary world.”
