Randi Narcomey, 2010 Masters Thesis Exhibition


Though Narcomey's work grows in a fine arts ground, it stems from her Native roots. The work uses one to speak about and for another.  The work is a reflection of her interest in mass media and how it produces us, how it affects our cultural identity and self-identity.  

In her work, Narcomey explores the ideas of “whiting out” and “piecing” images to reflect the Native American experience of history and current culture:  the bleaching of the culture, the bleaching of our history and our children’s history books.  Her artistic aim is to confront the distorted imagery, break it down and commandeer it to tell my truth, my culture’s truth.  

Opening Reception for the Exhibit will be held in the Alexandre Hogue Gallery February 25, 2010, from 5 to 7 pm.  The Exhibit will remain on display through March 18, 2010.
