Reflections of Jd Challenger, Artist
"The paintings that Mr. Challenger creates puts the viewer in front of a human being with two arms, two legs, and a heart just like yours. And he's asking the world to look - to look at my people, to look at me. This is who I am, this is what I am."
— Ronnie Jimmie, Seminole
"Scholars of American history are now contemplating the ways in which Indian culture has influenced the development of a national character that is uniquely American. Jd's work captures that connection. His uncanny mixture of symbols from two worlds presses the viewer to look for the messages that might be found there. It's as though he is saying, 'I don't necessarily want you to think what I think. I just want you think' ".
— Flint Carney, Comanche Nation of Oklahoma
