Remembering In America
This show will be a suite of mono prints which deal with Heap of Birds' vision of the Mayan Tree of Life as witnessed in Chiapas last year. The prints investigate a personal and tribal stance involving political and ceremonial values in Mexico and how this relates to his Cheyenne world view. The Mayan Tree of Life relates to the Standing House Poles at MOA-UBC, his 50 foot outdoor sculpture of 10 standing trees at the Denver Art Museum and the earth renewal ceremony of the North American Plains. All of these issues are examined with a personal poetics of text in his prints.
