Luanne Redeye uses painting as a way to see others. Working primarily in oil she depicts the relationship between perception and experience of native identity through genre scenes, designs, and portraits.
Born in Jamestown, New York, Luanne grew up on the Allegany Indian Reservation in Western New York. It is from here where she draws inspiration incorporating community and family members into her paintings, which gives her works a strong personal and emotional component.
Luanne currently lives in Albuquerque, NM. An enrolled member of the Seneca Nation of Indians and Hawk Clan, she studied at the University of New Mexico receiving her MFA in 2011. She has exhibited throughout the US and has been the recipient of various awards including most recently the Barbara and Eric Dobkin Fellowship at the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe, NM.
