Duane Slick: The Coyote Makes the Sunset Better
Published by The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, 2022
"Over a career spanning thirty years, painter Duane Slick has consistently pursued a vision to integrate secular Modernist abstraction with the beliefs and traditions of his Native American heritage. Duane Slick: The Coyote Makes the Sunset Better catalogs the artist’s first solo museum exhibition, bringing together over 90 paintings, prints, photographs, and video, all made within the last five years. The selected works include the artist’s ongoing series that reference the coyote as a seminal figure in indigenous culture, as well as paintings that reflect both the landscape of Slick’s upbringing in Iowa and the symbology and beliefs of his heritage as a citizen of both the Meskwaki (Fox of Iowa) and Ho-Chunk (Nebraska) Nations."
