Jimmie Durham

Jimmie Durham, an American Indian yet trained in Switzerland.  His work is very powerful.. La Malinche 1988-91 is about the Mexican Indian that was the interpreter and mistress of Cortez as the Spanish conquered Mexico. I love the lines drawn and the expressive sorrowful expression.

The other picture by him that I laughed at was this one below because I often wonder about what makes writing art and not just writing, and isn’t it just cheating…
