my mind museum
Art that I love. Two posts a day, linked by theme, subject matter, color. There's an emphasis on fine art, especially painting, but I also feature graphic design, illustration, sculpture, fashion, and architecture as the mood strikes me.

Wendy Red Star, Four Seasons, archival pigment print on paper, 2006."I moved to Los Angeles in 2004 from Montana right after I graduated from Montana State University in Bozeman. I was struck by the lack of natural environment in the city of Los Angeles and I was also lonely for home. I decided to go searching for something familiar, so I took a trip to the Los Angeles Natural History Museum to look at the Native American section. I saw one of my Crow ancestor’s moccasins on display in a glass case. Seeing his moccasin in this encased state made the object appear very odd and misplaced. I wanted to analyze this feeling further, but couldn’t quite piece it together. I strolled by the dioramas and found in them the same cold quality as the display of my ancestor’s moccasin. I decided to construct my own version of a diorama and to convey [the way] this format of display makes me feel. I fabricated four elaborate sets, one for each season, complete with plastic inflatable woodland creatures and 70s photo mural mountain ranges. I also photographed myself in the middle of the curious natural history-like dioramas."—Wendy Red Star, NY Arts Magazine
