EPISODE EIGHT | KEITH SECOLA JR

In this episode of pine|copper|lime Miranda speaks with Keith Secola a Northern Ute/Anishiaabe printmaker currently based in the Bay Area. Secola’s printmaking practice is a critique of text, images, and persuasion as it relates to history. He screenprints large-scale photographs from his family’s archive on to covers from publications of romanticised tales of early America often with wrapped views on the indigenous populations. Thus he physically and philosophically obscures and overrides these stories with a history from the voice of the subjects.
