"Man-infest Destiny" Oil Painting Art


"Man-infest Destiny" is a powerful oil painting that delves into the complex tapestry of history, culture, and the clash of civilizations. This striking artwork features a profile portrait of Bear Bull, a Blackfoot Native American, inspired by an early 1900s photograph taken by Edward S. Curtis.

At the heart of this masterpiece lies a potent symbol of both unity and discord - a gold coin woven into Bear Bull's hair, bearing the inscription "We the People" in colonial script. "Man-infest Destiny" invites viewers to contemplate the harsh realities of the past, portraying the displacement of Native Americans with depth and sensitivity. The artist's meticulous brushwork brings Bear Bull's character to life, while the golden coin speaks to the complexities of cultural exchange and power dynamics.

This oil painting is a reflection on the relentless march of history, the resilience of Native American cultures, and a call for understanding and reconciliation. It's an opportunity to engage with the stories that have shaped our nation and honor the strength of those who endured. It's a testament to the power of art to provoke thought, inspire change, and bridge divides.
