Artist: Mark Keathley Title: Boundaries Edition Size: Artist Signed and Numbered Limited Edition. Certificate of Authenticity . Limited to 220 Total editions. Medium: Giclee on Canvas, Stretched. Image Dimensions: 24" x 36". From the Artist: Across the landscape of time, tribes have roamed and settled in areas so that they could live by the customs which had been handed down to them and be free in their pursuits and daily lives. It is what causes the spread of civilization - that desire to set up a new world where "it will be different" and "we can be free." The world as these tribes knew it was only what they experienced and the boundaries of their world were only as far as they could travel. Territorial disputes might have been common with a neighboring tribe where a brief skirmish would determine the outcome and save hunting ground or tribal land, but nothing could prepare these groups of Native Americans for the tide of settlers which would wash over the land - changing their lives forever. You can use your imagination to picture what these brave warriors were coming to confront, but Boundaries is not about the clash between tribes, or the coming hoards of white settlers; it is about the determination we have to hang on to life as we know it. For centuries, powerful men have wanted to control the behavior of people. Unjust tactics, propaganda, and force have all been used to take freedoms away from the people so that a few can control the wealth and power of nations. This painting is about taking a stand against the forces that would change our lives forever. A line in the sand needs to be drawn or the freedoms we enjoy in our nation will disappear and we, too, will find ourselves living out our lives on a government reservation. ~ Mark Keathley
