b'Jaune Quick-to-See SmithJaune Quick-to-See Smith was born in 1940 at the St. Ignatius Indian Mission on the Flathead Reservation, Montana, and is an enrolled member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Nation. She received her BA in Art Edu-cation from Framingham State College, Massachusetts, in 1976, and an MA in Visual Arts from the University of New Mexico in 1980.Smith has been exhibiting since the 1970s. At first working mainly in painting and printmaking, she went on to use mixed media and collage, often incorporating text elements. Her work shows her attention to early modernists such as Paul Klee, to Abstract Expressionism, and to Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, and Pop art, as well as to her own Native American heritage. She treats stereotypical representations of Native Amer-ican culture in mainstream media with satire and humor, and she describes her work as examining contemporary life in America and interpreting it through Native ideology. Her engagement in Native American and human rights and her respect for nature are central to her art, with landscapein an expanded sensebeing a significant motif. This focus is clear in paintings such as The Forest (C. S. 1854) and in map paintings such as Survival Map and American Slang Map.
