For Jaune Quick-to-See Smith this work is emblematic of how Native Americans can feel caught between Indian traditions (symbolized by the medicine plant and the pictographs) and modern American culture. She also clues us into a joke: “‘Apples’ means to Indian people that some have turned against the old way and are white on the inside and red on the outside.” -- Label copy for Vortexhibition Polyphonica: Opus I, October 3, 2009 to February 9, 2010.
