Sister Sun weeps light upon the earth. She runs, eternally fleeing from the pain and hurt inflicted upon her by her brother, the Smudge-Faced Moon. In Athabaskan myth, the sun takes a colder, more distant character, contrasting the mythology of the southern world. Harmed and abused by her family, Sister Sun leaves the world, causing the annual darkness that is winter.
Sister Sun is part of the cosmic retelling of Out of the Darkness, which was awarded second place overall by Scott Canty, Curator of the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Art Park, at South Bay Contemporary’s All Themes 2014 Show.
