Sense, Sarah – “Weaving the Bayou III” Basket

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.”

Sense, Sarah – “Weaving Water 25” Woven Photographs

Sarah Sense is one of the phenomenal innovators in American Indian art.  This piece is entitled, “Weaving Water 25″ and it combines archival woven photographs and bamboo paper.  The photography of the setting sun combined with water is beautiful.  However, it is the open part of the basketry weaving which makes it so visually dynamic!  Somehow the movement of the water, the sky and the basketry all seems harmonious.  Sara uses her own photography as the basis for her “woven” paintings.  The designs in the weaving are all inspired by the basketry of her Chitimacha Tribal background.  In her desire to use the basketry imagery in her work she contacted tribal leaders, concerned about them being used in a flat “painting” as opposed to a three-dimensional basket.  With their permission she has created a dynamic art career.
