These drawings are the mesmerizing work of Joel Daniel Phillips at Tinney Contemporary in Nashville. His beautifully rendered artwork of the majestic buffalo are caught mid-stride and hung frame by frame in a manner reminiscent of Eadweard Muybridge who chronicled both the buffalo and Indigneous peoples across the U.S. in the 19th-century. A video animates the drawings and coupled with a haunting soundtrack makes a particularly poignant statement of the brutality of western expansion. October 7 – November 11, 2017.
