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 two Pueblo warriors fighting the Spanish during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. Note the “date” of the comic is 1680, August. The background has his amazing painted clouds which seem to add to the intensity of the piece! 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.
