Artist's description:

This work done on sanded Paper in graphite, conté crayon, charcoal, soft pastel, chalk, oil and ink measures 48" x 48" and is unframed. Drawn to Native American photographs of Edward S. Curtis at an early age Scott is returning to this, his favorite genre and subject matter. This work is inspired by a photograph taken by Edward S. Curtis of a Selawik Indian. It's the start of a series dedicated to the Native Americans and their ongoing plight against the industrialization and development of their lands for capitalisms gain. The powerful expression on the weathered face of this Native American man depicts the hard and painful struggles of his life and the injustices against them. The fur hood enveloping his face represents the vanishing of a noble and proud people to American greed.
