Description
Teal McKibben’s large pastel drawing depicting the indigenous arts in the artist’s collection at home, with a television displaying a ghostly image. In this work, the art on the wall becomes real and the image on the TV becomes imaginary and illusive. This is an import work for the museum that synthesizes European American art, Hispanic art, and Native American art. It is a modern version of Marsden Hartley’s painting El Santo, and like this work, acknowledges that ethnic art from the region are also art in a mainstream context
