Rez Wife,

Featured in this solo-exhibition is new and iconic photography by Wendy Red Star (Crow). Her work layers influences from her tribal background, daily surroundings, aesthetic experiences, collected ephemera and conjured histories that are both real and imagined. Through her photographs and sculpture new universes are built, simultaneously urban-rural and high-low with their own language of symbols created from such seemingly disparate sites as HUD houses, rez cars, three legged dogs, powwow culture, proliferative indigenous commoditization, and Red Star's personal collection of memories growing up as a half-breed on the Crow Indian reservation.

Red Star is currently living and working in Portland, Oregon. She received her B.F.A. from Montana State University-Bozeman and her M.F.A from UCLA in 2006. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and is included in numerous collections.
