Garcia, Jason – Four Corn Maidens Box

Jason Garcia is known for his tiles, he also creates a few boxes and jars each year.  This box is one that has four Corn Maidens painted, with one on each side.  They are painted in the old “two-dimensional” style of Santa Clara art and each of the Corn Maidens represents a different direction (North, South, East, West) based on the color (Blue, Red, White, Yellow).  In one hand she is holding corn and the other a basket of cornmeal.  On the ground are stylized corn plants and there is a corn design on each of the dresses.  The detail in this box is fantastic, with even small detailed created with the clay. The box is made of native clay and he uses native clay slips for the colors.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay “Okuu Pin” which is Jason’s name in Tewa (which means Turtle Mountain).  The piece is certainly inspired by the work of San Ildefonso painter Gilbert Atencio and his Blue Corn Maiden (see last photo).

Garcia, Jason – “Tewa Tales of Suspense!” Clay Tile

It’s great to have a new tile from Jason Garcia.  Jason has won numerous awards for his works in clay along with his Pueblo Revolt serigraph series.  This piece is made from native clay and painted with native clay slips.  This piece is part of his  “Tewa Tales of Suspense” series.  Each piece is inspired by graphic novels and early comic book art and the Pueblo Revolt of 1680.  This tile has the pueblo warrior standing on the edge of a cliff holding the head of one of the monks killed during the Revolt.  In the background, the church is burning.  This piece is a dramatic interpretation of true events, as when the Pueblo people revolted against the Spanish it was partially in response to a suppression of their native religion.  In response to that and the harshness of many of the priests, they were killed during the Revolt.   Note in the background there is a scene which Jason says was inspired by the famous painting by Hopi artist Fred Kaboti.  I included an image of the Kaboti painting in the description.  The painting and imagery on this piece are striking and intense.  His piece is signed with his Tewa name, Okuu Pin, which means Turtle Mountain.  This tile is hand built from native clay.  All of the colors are derived from Native clay.

Garcia, Jason – “A New Hope” Tile

This tile by Jason Garcia has two boys standing on the kiva (the underground room where traditional Pueblo ceremonies take place) in front of the Kiva ladder.  The is an older boy and his younger brother.  Jason said that this tile reminded him of his older brother, who passed away when Jason was just a small boy.  Here the two boys are looking off into the distance with a rather sentimental placement of the older brother standing behind and looking over his younger brother. The “New Hope” title comes from Star Wars, where Luke Skywalker is placed in much the same position, looking off into the future.  Each tile is hand built and made from native clay.  All of the colors are derived from Native clay.
