Artist Luanne Redeye grew up on the Allegany Indian Reservation in Western New York and is an enrolled member of the Seneca Nation of Indians and Hawk Clan. She received her BFA from SUNY Oswego in 2008 and her MFA from the University of New Mexico in 2011. She currently teaches at Binghamton University.
As a figurative artist, her work is an intersection of autobiography, community and family members, which gives her work a strong personal and emotional component. She depicts her culture and the relationship between perception and experience through genre scenes and portraiture. As she states, the “representation of Native peoples from a Native perspective is important to me. Sometimes that representation includes specific, identifiable symbols and sometimes it does not -- because the figures within my paintings define their culture on their own terms. The work asks the viewer to search further for the paintings meaning to wonder “why this image,” “why this person or these people” -- not to prove authenticity but to disprove what others think is “authentic.”
