The Life and Art of Allen Sapp

Allen Sapp - kK - " I can't write a story or tell one in the white man's language so I tell what I want to say with my paintings .

Contemporary Aboriginal art in Canada owes an enormous debt to the many Saskatchewan artists who have enriched it with their vast array of artistic expressions. Beginning with the work of ALLEN SAPP, a number of ABORIGINAL ARTISTS working in two- and three-dimensional media, installation, and performance art have created significant works of art that comment on issues related to Aboriginal people in Saskatchewan, such as politics, social concerns, and spiritual matters.

Song Within My Heart - "Based on Cree painter Allen Sapp's childhood memories of life on a reserve in Saskatchewan, a young boy who is getting ready to go to a powwow. Woven throughout is the boy's close relationship with his Nokum (grandmother). The illustrations reinforce strongly the simplicity of life on a reserve, the significance of the powwow and, of course, the love between grandmother and grandson."  Buy
