(SIOUX FALLS ARGUS-LEADER) — At a small angled table near the wall in his Sioux Falls apartment, Brian Narcomey carefully sketches a horse. It’s part of a commissioned piece called “Apocalyptic,” based on the Bible’s Book of Revelation and the four horsemen of the apocalypse.
It’s a scene that’s been depicted, in various mediums, in art time and time again. But Narcomey’s putting his own spin on it, using Native American symbols, like turtle shells in place of the scales of justice. Like other pieces in his portfolio of work, “Apocalyptic” will be awash with color and detail when finished, expressing the beauty of Native American culture.
Also like many of his other pieces, it will be intrinsically biblical – something that isn’t typically seen in Native American art.
