COMANCHE MOTION: THE ART OF ERIC TIPPECONNIC
Bold canvases show Comanche culture vibrantly alive in the modern world
Comanche Motion: The Art of Eric Tippeconnic tells the story of a thriving Comanche culture rooted in the past but evolving toward the future. Through the paintings of Comanche artist and historian Eric Tippeconnic, the exhibition blends the past with the present to honor the Comanche people.
Filled with symbolism and meaning, Tippeconnic’s paintings highlight the strength, beauty, and grace of the Comanche past and present. The paintings are rich with history and the unbroken connection the Comanche people have with their roots, but they are not romanticized or stagnant expressions of a bygone era. Rather, Tippeconnic’s art is full of movement, color, and life — a bold statement that Comanche culture is vibrantly alive in the modern world.
The exhibition features 34 artworks by Tippeconnic paired with historical Comanche artifacts, a juxtaposition that shows the inspiration for the artworks, as well as the historical evidence that underscores the rich heritage of the Comanche people.
Support for the Bullock Museum’s exhibitions and education programs is provided by the Texas State History Museum Foundation.
