In his winter 2009 feature article "…I Shed No Tears,” critic Daniel Baird delves deep into the blues riffs and representational concerns that drive the work of Toronto-based artist and musician Arthur Renwick. As Baird writes, “Renwick’s photographs do not distance themselves from native art and history; rather, they penetrate native people’s relationships to the ways in which they have been represented, and explore the uncomfortable relationship between native and non-native people.” Here, a bonus portfolio of six images from Renwick’s Mask portrait series is complemented by three tracks of Renwick’s blues-inflected guitar playing.
