What sort of items did Janue Quick‐to‐See Smith incorporate in her piece Trade (Gifts for Trading Land with White People), 1992, and what are their symbolic significance?
Jaune Smith layered images, paint, and objects on the canvas’ surface, suggesting layers of history and complexity. She divided into three large panels; the triptych (three parts) arrangement is reminiscent of a medieval altarpiece. Smith covered the canvas in a collage that had newspaper articles from her tribal paper Char-Koosta about Native life, photos, comics, tobacco and gum wrappers, fruit carton labels, ads, and pages from comic books, which all featured the stereotypical images of Native Americans. She mixed the collaged text with photos of deer, buffalo, and Native men in historic dress holding pipes with feathers in their hair, and an image of Ken Plenty Horses who is a character from one of Smith’s earlier pieces, the Paper Dolls for a Post Columbian World with Ensembles Contributed by US Government from 1991-92.
She applied blocks of white, yellow, green, but most especially a red paint over the layer of collaged materials in reference to her Native heritage as well as to blood, warfare, anger, and sacrifice. The emphasis on prominent brushstrokes and the dripping blocks of paint, she cited the Abstract Expressionist movement from the 1940s and 50s with raw brushstrokes signifying deep emotions and social chaos. She painted the outline of an almost life-sized canoe for a final layer. Canoes were used to travel along the waterways of North America by Native Americans as well as non-Native explorers and traders in the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth century. Though this empty canoe is stuck, unable to move, the canoe suggests the possibility of trade and cultural connections.
