Indian Candy

Exhibition runs September 19 to November 2, 2013

Indian Candy features new photography and print media by artist and AHVA Visual Arts faculty member Dana Claxton.

For Indian Candy, Claxton sourced material from the greater, worldwide digital archive in order to create aluminum-mounted chromogenic prints.  Bright, slick, and visually delicious, Indian Candy speaks volumes on how Indigenous iconography has been consumed by popular culture.

“Dana Claxton’s newest body of work has been long-awaited and does not disappoint,” says gallery owner Jennifer Winsor. “With such bright and seductive surfaces, these works become both a literal reversal of the white-washing of history and a brilliant tribute to pop art and culture.”

Winsor Gallery has distinguished itself locally, nationally, and internationally as a premier source for contemporary art. Foremost a commercial gallery, Winsor Gallery strives to ensure the long-term development of our artists’ careers through promotion, collaboration, and thoughtful curation.
