Abstract painting with lavender and yellow pigments, scrawled across in charcoal UNERASING NDN

Ka'ila Farrell-Smith is a contemporary Klamath Modoc visual artist, writer and activist based in Modoc Point, Oregon. Focusing on a series of Land Back paintings created in her Modoc Point studio, Ka’ila Farrell-Smith utilizes wild harvested pigments from Klamath lands, aerosol stencils of metal detritus found on the ranch land of the studio. Combined, these marks with harvested wild pigments constitute layers that bridge contemplation of colonizers violence and trauma, offering a matrix for resiliency and transformation of perception and memory. Formally, the works examine improvisational composition and abstract exploration, additional layers of thicker paint utilize text and imagery cited from the artist’s research.
