This painting by Les Namingha is entitled, “Hopi”.  The painted white background wit the large Hopi birds layered on top of one another is striking!  It is as if the painting is taken from pottery but also the levels of coloration give the piece a very modernist appearance. There is a seamless flow between shapes, colors, and designs.  It is signed on the corner and framed in a silver leaf frame.  Les says of his Layers pieces:

“The concept of layering is inherent in our mortal journey. As time moves forward, our memories become layered. Some memories remain vibrant, others faint or hazy. Yet others, obscure or even hidden. Likewise, our experiences, words, works, emotions, prayers, and songs build up in layers creating our existence. In turn, our social interactions become exercises in layering. We see this in evidence with street art or graffiti writing where layers of thought and a desire to express a “proof of existence” create tapestries of color and marks. Blending, covering, harmonizing, dissonance, disappearing. This concept of layering is the idea behind Urban Polychrome and other works in the Urban Series.”  Les Namingha
