Cree artist Chholing Taha breathes fresh sensibility into traditional idioms. As vivid as waking dreams, her paintings and textiles feature bright colors and detailed imagery, often in bold relief against backgrounds of elusive figures or symbols. In this solo show, curated by John Schuerman, the Anoka-based artist creates work that comes to her mind fully formed. The harmony and balance conveyed may seem more decorative at times, while telling a long-forgotten story at others. Uplifting and restorative, Taha’s pieces are a visual palate-cleanser in today’s world, offering a reprieve that enlightens the spirit.
