Jeffrey Gibson Biography

Jeffrey Gibson’s paintings and sculptures are inspired by the traditional craft and modern arts of Native American cultures. His sense of pride and desire to reclaim ownership of these histories counter the potentially negative connotations of craft that have been placed onto Native American Art, situating his work within the pantheon of abstract modernism.
