When Raven Became Spider features work by six contemporary Indigenous artists and storytellers whose work blurs the line between modern oral stories and contemporary pop art. Their work prompts many questions: How does the transformation of Indigenous images and stories into superhero tales change modern dialogue?
The suite of works in Exquisite to Sublime will provide a glimpse of Melody’s development as an artist. She began her professional artistic journey in textiles. Having grown up watching her grandmother embroider instilled a value of working with her hands. Her free motion embroidered works are a stage in her seamless transition into painting with oils and acrylics. Her paintings can be as both calm and introspective and powerfully emotional and invoking a sense of freedom.
