photo of text from gallery wall with historical quoteThese 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.
