George Littlechild: The Spirit Giggles Within
Format: Hardcover
Reading Level: N/A

George Littlechild: The Spirit Giggles Within is a stunning retrospective of a career that has spanned nearly four decades. Featuring more than 150 of the Plains Cree artist's mixed-media works, this sumptuous collection showcases the bold swaths of colour and subtle textures of Littlechild's work. Littlechild has never shied away from political or social themes. His paintings blaze with strong emotions ranging from anger to compassion, humour to spiritualism. Fully embracing his Plains Cree heritage, he combines traditional Cree elements like horses and transformative or iconic creatures with his own family and personal symbols in a unique approach. George Littlechild: The Spirit Giggles Within shows the evolution of an artist from his earliest works to the present day, including hints of future directions and themes.

An insightful foreword by artist and curator Ryan Rice, a Mohawk from the Kahnawake First Nation in Quebec, and Littlechild's reflections on each piece build a broad understanding of Littlechild's work, his life and his views on the role of art within all cultures.

Reviews
”Littlechild’s magical colour, thought-provoking images and commentary provide insight into his personal symbolism, which somehow transforms his story into everyone’s story.” —Sherry Farrell Racette, Artist, Timiskaming First Nation

“Like the ceremonial unwrapping of a sacred medicine bundle, this salient retrospective of masterworks is clearly George Littlechild’s master narrative . . . a rare autobiographical gaze into the artist’s private and public space.” —Barry Ace, Artist, Michigiwadinong First Nation

“George Littlechild paints with light and butterfly medicine. This retrospective showcases the brilliance, beauty and grace of his work.” —Richard Van Camp, author of A Man Called Raven
