Location: Washington State Arts Commission, Clallam Bay
ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Father and Son is an intimate portrait of familial connection, captured by artist Trinidad Krystal. Of his work, Krystal notes "the way I try to utilize photography expressively is very similar to the way people of my native culture used traditional secular song form to express their lives and the events that shaped them."
This artwork is part of Beyond Blue Mountains, a collection that was curated by late Tlingit (Native Alaskan) artist Jim Schoppert. It presents the work of Native American artists of diverse heritage, ideas, materials, and styles. The collection takes an in-depth look at the artists’ unique voices and interpretations of tradition.
This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Department of Corrections.
