Garel first begins with a drawing, then makes a carving in wood. From there he makes the mold to cast the bronze sculpture. The result is a beautifully realistic shining skull of a bird, dolphin or gorilla. Others, originally sculpted in Styrofoam, appear to be real bone. They too are bronze. Quentin’s unique sculptures, or “trophies” as he calls them, seem organic in material and origin but unlike real wood or bone, these works of art will stand the test of time.
November is American Indian Heritage month. Did you know that there are at least 562 federally recognized tribal nations in the U.S.?
Matika Wilbur is attempting to photograph every one. Wilbur, of the Swinomish and Tulalip in Washington State, sold everything she owns to travel the nation taking portraits of her people. She calls the series Project 562 and aims to debunk myths about American Indian culture. “I’m not a Halloween costume. I hope to encourage a new conversation of sharing and to help us move beyond the stereotypes.”
"We are still here," she says. "We remain."
