Keith Secola

Keith Secola’s residency project explores Native American identity by overlaying the images from two archival photo albums representing his family and Ute Indian Heritage onto collaged and deconstructed American history books. Secola blends printmaking, archival photography, illustrations, and murals depicting Native American life. For this exhibition, Secola creates an immersive installation combining collage pieces and hand painted graphic murals using illustrations from euro-centric Native American stories near the 1492 contact period. His work highlights the differences between real identities of indigenous people and widely circulated fantastical images.
