upcycled jean vest, moose hide, abalone buttons, cotton fabric, seed beads, short bugle beads, horse hair, nylon thread, with Self Made (2020) grad cap
I associate this work with protection. The abalone buttons represent wealth and power. This work is meant to protect the wearer during metaphorical battles they may face. This work was featured in my exhibition Et-shinh (Medicine). The artworks included in this exhibition were created while in residence at the Bonnie McComb-Kreye Artist Residency and were exhibited at The Fifty Fifty Arts Collective.
