TRICKSTER UTOPIA PAINTINGS


Yakama Tribal Museum nominates Trickster as a guide in troubled times:
 
"SPILYAY IS THE LEGENDARY TRICKSTER WHO APPEARED MOST OFTEN IN THE GUISE OF A COYOTE AND WHO, WITH DARING AND HUMOR, TAUGHT MANKIND HOW TO SURVIVE AND LIVE HARMONIOUSLY WITH NATURE IN ALL FORMS AND MOODS. SPILYAY’S CHALLENGE IS ADDRESSED TO BOTH NON-INDIAN AND INDIAN TO LEARN ABOUT THE ART OF LIFE AND DEATH. THE CHALLENGE OF SPILIYAY IS ALL AROUND US."

Inside the pandemic foxhole, bad baby demons in brickyards, everyday moire interference patterns, bird weddings, oceanic signatures, a heavenly tapestry.

Gallery Exhibitions: Left Field, Los Osos, with TL Solien, 2021;  Patricia Sweetow, San Francisco, with Toshiaki Noda, 2021.
