This piece is entitled, “Paper Doll” and utilized Leslie Browning Tafoya as the model.  Ashley says of this piece, “After playing with paper dolls as a child, I always wanted to play with a pueblo paper doll, especially a paper doll from my pueblo of Santa Clara. I inspired it from the summer side, where there is a mix of different style and colors.”  The piece is creative with the various traditional clothes from Santa Clara. She ended up dressing the model three different times for the clothing ‘options’.  Native People’s Magazine wrote about Ashely and this piece,

 “I like to make people feel, to remember something—experience something meaningful,” says Ashley Browning, 21, of Pojoaque and Santa Clara pueblos in New Mexico. In 2013 she won first prize at Indian Market for best computer-generated graphics with her “real-life” paper doll, which featured a digitally altered photo of her model with interchangeable traditional and contemporary attire. With it, Browning used the digital present to evoke memories of the previous generation’s analog world.”

Da, Tony – “Corn Dancer” Original Casein Painting (1975)

Tony Da is famous for his intricately etched and stylized pottery.  However, throughout his career he always wanted to be known as a painter.  His early work was all painted in casein and then after 1977 he also began to paint with acrylic.  This painting is from 1975 and one of his few later figurative pieces. The detail in the corn dancer is extraordinary, with little details on the branches in his hands.  As well, the very angular nature of the figure harkens back to some of his earliest paintings from the 1960’s, with elongated and angular figures.  The coloration and movements is  exceptional, as is the subject matter.  The painting is signed in the lower right corner “DA”.  It is in its original frame and the painting was originally purchased from Tony in 1975.   Paintings of his in this style and quality are certainly among the most visionary of his career.

Sarah Sense is one of the phenomenal innovators in American Indian art.  Her work combines weaving her own photography into both two-dimensional and now basket form. There are only five remaining traditional Chitimacha Tribal basket weavers in the Louisiana area and Sarah uses these designs in her work.  This basket uses bamboo paper, rice paper, archival digital printing and pen and ink.  The design is a beautiful sunset image and an additional writing on the back.  Sarah said of this series…

“These are all photos that I have taken of the Bayou Teche, which is the main water fixture on the Chitimacha reservation. I have woven through the basket text of the Bayou Teche Legend, which is about how the Bayou was made. The text in Basket 1 is from a book of poems that my grandmother lent to me, which has Choctaw poems, they are really beautiful. The Choctaw ancestry is what I’ve been working with most recently for my new series, “Choctaw Irish Relation.” In a lot of ways, my work is merging Chitimacha with Choctaw – very exciting.”
