The Visitors from Oklahoma
Gift of Mr. and Mrs. W.D. Weiss
Amiotte synthesizes layers of photographs, text and painted images into a narrative collage in which multiple events occur simultaneously. The painted figures echo traditional Plains Indian ledger art, and their juxtaposition with family photographs and written words presents a record of Lakota as well as family history. The automobile, a symbol of modernity and change, is a recurring image in Amiotte's collages. The artist notes that the fifty year in Sioux history from 1880 to 1930 was "a period when drastic cultural change and adaptation were taking place . . ."
