Exhibition and Artist Information
Last Gun’s exhibition features a selection of recent works on paper and a mural. He often explores color, form, and memory, all while reflecting Piikani visual aesthetics and philosophy. “I’ve always been inspired by my ancestors’ ability to interpret the world around them in some of the most simple and geometric forms. The Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Apohtosi Piikani, Amskapi Piikani) painted lodges are a perfect representation of Blackfoot artistry. It’s interesting how home follows you wherever you go, this concept of home certainly has continued to influence my art. The works in this exhibition are a continuum of a millennia-old culture and visual language.”
Terran J. Last Gun (b. 1989, Browning, Montana) is a Piikani (Blackfeet) citizen and visual artist working in printmaking, photography, and most recently, murals. Last Gun graduated from the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in 2016 with a BFA in Museum Studies and AFA in Studio Arts. He currently lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
