“Piikani Top Knot” 20

“Piikani Top Knot” 20" x 16" Oil on canvas is a portrait of a Piikani Blackfoot warrior. His traditional top knot stands in strong contrast to his trade shirt and vest. The top knot atop his head is considered a symbol of high status--you wouldn’t have seen a young man with a top knot this substantial. They were reserved for those who had achieved great tasks or had some wars behind him. Notice, too, his red warpaint. He wears a button-up shirt, a difficult-to-acquire piece that he could have acquired through trade or war. His necklace features two large shells on either sides, with numerous strands of shell beads. Those items were highly sought after at the time, especially the trade shirt. This painting was inspired by several George Catlin water colors, as well as an Edward Curtis photo of a Blackfeet man with a large top knot (although in the photo his top knot is braided) . . . . . . #fineart #canvas #painting #figurative #figufativeart #figurativepainting #contemporaryportrait #contemporaryrealism #oilpainting #workinprogress #oiloncanvas #nativeamerican #indigenous #FirstNations #americanindian #artmuseum #portaitpaining #nativepride #Urbanrezsociety #Indigenouspride #powwow #warrior #holy #sacred #westernhistory #portraitmood #wildwest #jamesayers #blackfeetnation #piikani ...

"The relationship between subject style and meaning is a complex one, but it is the path of an image painter like myself. I’ve always been ambitious about what might be possible in rearranging these elements to communicate in new ways. What has challenged me to innovate? A hunger to hit the limits of what I might understand at any given time, a passion for the ways painting might present itself within a traditional history, a sense of competition with the work of other artists, and the privilege of having the time and space afforded by a supportive family, steady academic job, and good space because of my location off the beaten path - Cincinnati Ohio. I’m a flexible steady person by nature, but I’ve also never compromised my vision, even when the market or circumstances may provide an easier or more reliable path." - Emil Robinson @emiljrobinson Our recent interview with the artists is now up on the website 👉 check it out via link in bio ...
