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, painted with native clay slips, and traditionally fired. 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. The piece has “Pajogeri XXIII” as the date, meaning Summer (in Tewa) 2023. The tile has a female warrior fighting a Spanish invader with her shield and knife. Great action! In the background are the Pueblo and kiva. Note the small raincloud in the sky, which is a signature of Jason’s art. The coloration on this piece is striking with the clay showing through and the subtle sky. The motion and power of this piece is exceptional. His piece is signed with his Tewa name, Okuu Pin, which means Turtle Mountain.
