My paintings and sculptures are reactions to contemporary landscapes and social environments. My perspective is informed by having grown up a Native person, born to parents of the boarding school generation, being born post the civil rights movement, and coming of age after the height of the American Indian Movement. These factors are at the core of the content of my work, the questions I struggle with that guide how I view the world around me.

Painter and installation artist Jeffrey Gibson (Mississippi Band of Chocktaw/Cherokee, born 1972) received his bachelor of fine arts degree from the Art Institute of Chicago and a master’s degree from the Royal College of Art, London, in addition to studying briefly under Nambé Pueblo sculptor Ernest Mirabel. Gibson has participated in group and solo exhibitions in the United States and Europe and is a 2009 Eiteljorg Fellow.
