The Indian in Transition

The rebirth of Indian consciousness created emotions that made the subject matter of my art more spontaneous. I was no longer preoccupied with the mechanical aspects of art, or with personal survival. My work was empowered by the joys, sorrows, and survival of my people in transition. (Odjig: The Art of Daphne Odjig 1960-2000, Key Porter Books, 2001, p. 54)
