Pasatiempo - - ART SANTA FE -

The Navajo cul­ture and per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence is the foun­da­tion of Yazzie’s work. Yazzie’s paint­ing lit­er­ally starts with a splash of paint sparked by an idea, the rest is com­pleted with in­tu­ition and ex­per­i­men­ta­tion. Yazzie also carves what he has coined as “Yei wall sculp­tures”. These wall sculp­tures are carved, painted and adorned with nat­u­ral ex­otic (le­gal) feath­ers. Demon­stra­tion and sale of his work will be at the Mu­seum of In­dian Arts & Cul­ture through­out Folk Art Mar­ket week­end.
