Painter, print-maker, curator, and activist for the future of Native art, this prominent artist has also expanded into sculpture.
Carved from one piece of honed alabaster, this two-faced sculpture is representative of how love is “rough around the edges”. According to Ishkoten, the sculpture is about two people that cupid’s arrow missed.
The top of the sculpture is left as rough stone, a physical representation of the statement above.
The earth-toned alabaster is fixed atop a beautiful piece of Cherry wood, the red hues pulling out the reds and oranges in the natural stone.
This stunning sculpture is thought-provoking and evocative, the longing in the faces almost palpable.
Definitely a one-of-a-kind piece by a one-of-a-kind artist!
*Please note that the signature on the piece has been intensified in the photo to show that it is there, as it is very light on the sculpture itself.
