Eric and Barbara Dobkin Fellowship
The School of Advanced Research is pleased to welcome Northern Cheyenne painter, printmaker, and designer Jordan Craig as the 2018 Barbara and Eric Dobkin Native Artist Fellow. Craig is an emerging artist at the nascence of her career. She draws inspiration from Aboriginal art, Indigenous textiles and pottery, and landscapes; telling stories about her childhood, family, trauma, and the appealingly mundane. Craig explains, “Using dots, peculiar geometries, cut paper, and pattern, I explore the feeling of forgetting how to sleep, the memory of building homes in trees, and the translation of language and dreams.” While at SAR, Craig will study the symbols and patterns utilized in the textiles, basket-weaving and pottery of the IARC collection and utilize these resources as inspiration for her work. Craig will be in residence from March 1 – May 31, 2018.
