Four Seasons Series (Spring)
Wendy Red Star American
Not on view
In this four-part photographic work, Wendy Red Star pokes fun at romantic idealizations of American Indians as “one with nature.” She depicts herself, dressed in traditional Crow regalia, in four majestic landscapes, one for each season. Inflatable animals, plastic flowers, Astroturf, and other artificial materials reference the dioramas of Native peoples often seen in natural history museums. Panoramic images of the Western landscape, commercially produced in the 1970s, are reflected in these prints.
