Gloss:
Quick-to-See Smith, an artist of Salish, Shoshone and French-Cree heritage, interweaves the formal innovations of modern Euro-American artists, such as Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee and Robert Rauschenberg, with traditional Native American iconography. In Games People Play, her pictographic forms describe past and present-day games of Native American people-stick games, horse racing and casino enterprises-while her earth tones and layered textures poetically convey the feeling of the rugged Western landscape.
