Mapping and (Meta)Morphing 

Now on View
3.23–4.27.2024

Bockley Gallery is pleased to welcome Star WallowingBull (Ojibwe and Arapaho) for his sixth solo exhibition with the gallery. Through vivid and intricate colored-pencil drawings and acrylic paintings, WallowingBull explores intersections of Indigeneity and United States pop culture that conceptually and playfully expose and override colonial mechanisms of control. With Mapping and (Meta)Morphing, WallowingBull continues to refuse the calcified borders that attempt to constrain place, memory, and the ever-spinning web of belonging. His rendition of pop art flattens and warps the visual plane, creating porous and speculative imagery of past, present and future Native life.
