The UK Specialist in Contemporary Native American Indian Art and Jewellery
08 March – 31 May 2018
Our spring exhibition presents recent works by fine art photographer Cara Romero. Raised on the Chemehuevi Valley Indian reservation along the California shoreline of Havasu Lake in the heart of the Mojave Desert, Romero is a born visual storyteller with a unique ability to illuminate and communicate subtle and complex perspectives on contemporary Indigenous life. Cara Romero invites us to marvel at the beauty, colours and textures of her worldview and to understand the challenges that face Indigenous communities across the continent. Through intimate portraits and playful images, this exhibition offers an authentic view of Indigenous identities, cultures and landscapes by one of the most exciting contemporary Native artists of our time.
