Dennis RedMoon Darkeem Artist, Educator, Community, and Cultural Practitioner. My work is inspired by creating community, reflecting on history, environment, and human connections. My practice incorporates building on layers of new and old experiences to form new narratives. My work is mixed media and multidimensional, which allows experiences of being engaged, enlightened, and educated. I use installation, photography, sculpture, drawing and painting, sound, and performance as vessels to balance ideas of transformation, honor, and the future generation. My aesthetic is inspired by my cultural background as a descendant of Yamassee Yat’siminoli Indigenous tribe and African-American. I incorporate traditional craft customs, storytelling, history, and connections to earth and water. I'm inspired to build community through my art and to create spaces, workshops, for diverse communities to be engaged and inspired by my art.
