“Considering the spectacular new direction in jewelry created by American Indian artists, I remember how Lovena described them as the American equivalent of Faberge. I also recall a quote by Pual Smith of New York’s American Craft Museum who said ” They ( the jewelers) have attended a whole new aesthetic level, keeping the vital connection with the past, yet transcending it. I believe these artists have given to jewelry what jazz gave to music –  a uniquely American contribution. They create beautiful works of art that can be worn, and by doing so, have earned international recognition”

    ALLISON, ORLANDO – POP ART CIRCA 1900’s

    $3,800.00

    Circa 1900’s

    The central image was taken from a turn of the century Edward Curtis photo of a young man

    from the village of Moenkopi on Third Mesa, Arizona. The image was found in the Library of

    Congress archives. What initially garnered my interest was how striking the individual appeared

    in the photograph. His attire was really an intriguing relic of the past causing me to wonder

    about the young man’s life in his utilitarian dress up. With little information about the person’s

    life, my thoughts began to wonder.

    These relics from the past must be brought through a transformation and assimilated into the

    qualities of today. Into the new possibilities, into the new vision of the universe. these must

    be kept alive. Artist sole duty and function is the mythologization of the environment and the

    world. the myths of the old must be regenerated if they’re going to have any impact.

    Butterfly Dream

    This particular painting was conceived and conjured up under direct influences of vivid

    memories and persistent dreams. Revealing a tapestry of myth manifesting in symbolic and

    metaphoric images of my energetic youth residing within my modern frame of reference. Each

    visual element crescendoing into a calypso of excitement felt by a young youth experiencing all

    the modern pleasures of an American living in the 90’s and fusing of summer Hopi social butterfly

    dances.

    The representational yet abstract nature is a result of the marginalizing effects of occurring in

    two worlds with opposing worldviews. In this way demonstrating the resilience of our

    grandparents to maintain ancient rituals as the people evolve. For instance, the folk tails and

    myths are transforming as the people evolve. The environment transforms the culture and we

    respond to it while the stories shape. Transforming to the situation of the people. A

    phenomenon that echoes throughout all Native culture and arts.
