Walks Softly and Carries One Large Hatchet
By Kevin Peters
Kevin Peters is a contemporary artist with one foot planted in the past. His painting accurately depicts traditional Nez Perce form, style and sensibility, but is modern in technique and medium. His deep understanding of his Columbia Plateau and Euro-American cultures enables him to accurately produce elements of Columbia Plateau material culture while redefining our ideas of both the past and the present.
