Under 35: Part II features art work by four artists, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Heidi Brandow, Brandee Caoba and Moira Garcia, all with connections to the Institute of American Indian Arts, in Santa Fe.
Heidi Brandow is a Santa Fe based painter, printmaker and draughtsman whose work is commonly filled with whimsical characters and monsters that are often combined with words of poetry, stories, and personal reflections. Her heritage includes Native Hawaiian singers, musicians and performers on her mother’s side and Diné storytellers and medicine people on her father’s side. Drawing her inspiration from everyday life, Heidi’s work concerns discovering, defining, and redefining personal identity by questioning authority and deconstructing mainstream assumptions of Native Americans. Brandow’s work engages personal, cultural, and historical experiences while incorporating perspectives of critical theory.
Under 35: Part II, runs from January 24 to February 22, 2014.
