"David Bradley (Minnesota Chippewa) creates narrative paintings that layer and comment ironically upon people, places, events, histories, cultural realities, and the times in which the artist lives. Bradley's art has become a recognized voice from Indian Country, exploring questions of identity, self-determination, and self-portrait, giving vent to issues about which he is passionate. Indian Country compiles the styles and media the artist has worked in over the course of his career, including printmaking, sculpture, and mixed-media, to redirect the gaze of American life from an Indian point of view. Saturated with a powerful Native voice and evocative visual description of Indian experience, Bradley's paintings interweave historical and political truths, social and personal narrative, and cultural critique. Native people take center stage in world art, challenging embedded assumptions, reconsidering history and its icons. For three decades the post-modern trickster, David Bradley is the outsider confronting the dangers and challenges of his world with paradox, incongruity, fantasy, and humor." -- Back cover.
