blake shaá’koon lepine
Blake Lepine is a member of the Carcross Tagish First Nation and grew up participating and celebrating in the Tlingit culture of this land base. Blending modern mediums with the ancient Tlingit art form to express the modern age is one of the primary focuses of his work.
The main focus of the work I’ve chosen to exhibit is to find the maximum amount of redemption with lost or discarded things. I find tremendous beauty in trying to redeem the garbage of life, regardless of it being emotional or physical.
