Kenny Metoxen: Artist’s Statement
My works are in a manner of old, worn and fragile creative process for viewing. The forms of wall hangings, pottery, sculptures, necklaces and peace stones are fort the on looker’s version of an artifact, a piece of life long past gone recently dug up from an archeologist and studied by an anthropologist for centuries. Polished, clean, pristine, well balanced art has been dictated from Eurocentric definitions called Fine Art and has followings from other capitalistic Colonialistic Countries as well. Many overseas international circles view the creative process value from a political platform dictated from an agenda that allows dialogues only from their self-serving definitions. From my perspective the indigenous has been created with more altitude in processing nature’s values as the identity of art! This being written, when exposing all five of one’s senses to his/her creativities one will see “Unkewhu’we” (Ung Way Who Way) = The Real People.
