Jaune Quick-to-See Smith

Native American , 1940 -

Native American artist Jaune Quick-To-See Smith has been called a harbinger, a mediator, and a bridge-builder, dedicated to preserving the heritage of all Native Americans. More than concerned with the past, she is directly involved with contemporary issues that in her art blend traditional Indian symbols with the imagery of such 20th century artists as Miro and Klee as well as materials from everyday life. The results are iconic images that make forceful, visionary statements, sensitive, even humorous, but unfailingly powerful and challenging.
