About the work
Umar Rashid (Frohawk Two Feathers)
American, b. 1976
Follow

In intricate paintings, Frohawk Two Feathers re-imagines 18th-century colonial history, conjuring a fictional cast of subjects that includes a rebel fighting force of freed slaves, militiamen, dukes, lords, and tribesmen. Two Feathers paints ink and acrylic scenes onto coffee- and tea-stained paper, detailing colonial uprisings against the imaginary superpowers Frengland and Fenoscandia. His images contain a mashup of references, combining elements of 18th- and 19th-century colonial portraiture and folk art with visual signifiers of contemporary urban culture, including jewelry and body art associated with present-day gangsters and hipsters. Two Feathers wryly points to the instability of public histories and confronts issues of race, power, and greed.
