  • Kate Bolia _ Cherokee
         Cherokee is a striking image of an Indian Brave by the Native American artist Kate Bolia.
     
    Artist Statement:
     
         This painting took hold of me from the moment I started it and just flowed. It only took me a few days to complete it, which is very unusual for me. The colors in his face that came from the black paint of the mask were absolutely fascinating. The look in his eyes was at once both proud and defeated, strong and fragile. I believe this is why this painting has been so popular and seen so much success. I may spend the rest of my career trying to duplicate what I did here.

  • Kate Bolia _ Haisla Elder
     
         Haisla Elder is portrait of an Indian elder of the Haisla First Nation by the Native American artist Kate Bolia.
     
    Artist Statement:
     
        This painting was inspired by my friend, Cliff, of the Haisla First Nation of British Columbia. This area and people captured my heart in a way that no other place has. The beauty is vast and reaches into your soul. Spending time on the water with Cliff, learning the old stories, learning about the spirit bear and the old ways of fishing was life changing. I believe that Georgia O'keefe said after visiting New Mexico early in her career, she spent most of her life trying to get back there. This is how I feel about Kitamaat, BC and the people there.

  • Kate Bolia _ Painted for Battle
         Painted for Battle is a reverent depiction of the Indian War Horse by the Native American artist Kate Bolia.
     
    Artist Statement:
     
         This is a war horse. These horses were painted before battles and before hunting trips.
    The Indian war horse was highly regarded by its American Indian owner, who often honored and protected his war horse by painting tribal symbols upon the animal's body.
         Each power symbol has its own specific meaning and the purpose for which it was used was determined by the nature of the dangerous job which the war horse would be asked to do.
    The circles around the eyes and nose give the horse alert vision and a  keen sense of smell. The right/left hand prints were outlined upon the horse's chest, which showed that he'd knocked down an enemy.

  • Kate Bolia _ Untitled: Horse
         This dream view is of an untitled image of a horse is by the Native American artist Kate Bolia.
     
    Artist Statement:
     
         The original was sold to a horse lover, that asked me to so something for her.  I had no idea what direction to go in, but I knew she loved paint horses. I had an idea in mind of what I was going to do, but the night before I started, I had a dream of a horse running thru a pasture full of flowers, but the earth itself was red. When I woke up, I changed the course of the painting and just started working with acrylics as loosely as I could and this is what came of it.  The red represents the earth, where I believe we receive our power. Since this painting, all of my pieces have a red mark somewhere to ground me and to represent our mother, the earth, and the gift of talent she has given me.
