The choice of subjects is the most important moment an artist has for expressing himself – it’s the moment when he says, “This is what I am about.”

Native Impressions

Native Impressions: In Our Own Words  is a collaborative project I did with Lucy Ganje, Professor of Graphic Design, University of North Dakota, and Kim Fink, Professor of Print and Master Printer at Sundog Multiples, University of North Dakota.

In the summer of 2015, Daniel Heyman, Lucy Ganje and Kim Fink interviewed 13 Native American tribal members from North Dakota's 4 Indian reservations and produced a 26 print portfolio of images and text that give voice to contemporary Native lives from the Northern Plains. Created with generous support from the Dean of Humanities and the Art Department at the University of North Dakota, and the Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University,  this portfolio has a publication date of January 1, 2016, will contain 12 woodblock reduction prints by Daniel Heyman, each a portrait of a Native American person, 12 letter-press broadsides created by Lucy Ganje, a colophon (letter-press), a title page (woodblock and letter-press) and a clam shell box. Fink was the master printer overseeing the printing. These prints are 25.5 inches x 19.5 inches, and are printed in two editions: On handmade paper by Nicole Donnelly 85%mulberry and 15% native flax the edition is 9; on Japanese Okawara 100% kozo paper, the edition is 16. More information including images of the broadside prints by Lucy Ganje is available by contacting Cade Tompkins Projects at here
