    An enrolled member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Nation, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith creates multifaceted art that communicates her insistent socio-political commentary. In Unhinged (Map), 2018, she presents her world view by painting a map of North American countries upside down and separated by blocks of color and abstract lines of centrifugal force. Highlighting the artificiality of political borders and reminding us of these nations’ histories with native peoples, Quick-to-See Smith’s provocative painting combines the personal and political.
