Meat Vision, 2002

John Feodorov
(American | Navajo, born 1960)

Location: University of Washington, Seattle


John Feodorov is one of the eight contemporary Native American artists featured in the Gallagher Law Library. Meat Vision is from a series of six mixed media artworks that explore issues of identity, sovereignty, and cultural heritage. Feodorov states "I eat meat. I'm sorry. A Navajo without meat in his mouth is starving."

This artwork is part of the Contemporary Native American Artwork Collection, on view at the University of Washington Gallagher Law Library in Seattle. The collection was proposed by artist John Feodorov, who selected the eight represented artists (including himself) for their rich and forward-thinking cultural expression. Speaking to the contemporary nature of this collection, Feodorov notes “since art, like law, is an ever evolving process, it cannot rely on nostalgia if it is to remain relevant."

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with University of Washington.


Navajo artist John Feodorov creates artworks that explore concepts of spiritual identity, alienation, and yearning. He lives and works in Seattle, Washington.
