“Tranquility” was the first word to pop into my head when looking at mixed-media sculptor Drew Michael’s mask forms. Their streamlined shape, mix of both Western and indigenous iconography, and smoothness immediately bring a sense of calm to the viewer. In his fourth solo exhibition, the Inupiaq/Yup’ik artist draws on a variety of sources to explore, even more deeply than he has in the past, concepts of shadow selves, spirals, and journeys through mazes to reach understanding.
