As a young Native American Artist, I am challenged to create art on my own terms. There are many stereotypes about Native Americans and Native American art and my work is often misunderstood for not looking ” Indian” or “Native”. This is why I have decided to create a new line of sculptural jewelry, titled facetiously, ” silverinjun”.

I draw inspiration from my heritage, Picuris and Dine (Navajo) and French and of course the opulence of American culture. This combination reflects the style of my newest works.

It is important to act your culture and traditions and to be expressive as an individual.

Graduate Art Studio Review II

The beginning of this was an easy idea… as I began, it became quite an undertaking in creating simplicity.

 Immediately, structure, form , material and aesthetic became the foreground of this work.  Ideas began to bloom and structure started to form. Ideas of relationship between small metal sculpture and creating an installation began to intertwine. Single point matter became consumed by line and space and how that reacts with the viewer and their personal space. Ideas of tension, haphazardness, uncomfortable, inconvenient,  convenient, dizzy, institution, stereotype, withheld, and irrational encumbered the space…encompassed by Sound and Light which held these two worlds together.

     Jewelry has always been a part of my life, since a young age.

In my work,  I incorporate traditional and modern techniques, themes and ideas, from my own life and my Native American culture.

My  intentions during my studies here at the University of New Mexico is to transition from traditional silversmithing to exploring sculptural work, Installations and the interrelationship between their form, aesthetic and wearability.

     On a micro scale to the greater art culture , there is a movement toward an awareness of modern Native American art.

…”Fadden notes that “Traditions are bound in our thoughts and behaviors,” and many objects created by America’s Indigenous peoples are physical manifestations of those thoughts. He adds that the term “tradition” can be “a semantic booby trap.”…” (Sorensen 2).

Some of my own questioning within this second project is.  Are there still stereotypes about Native Americans and particularly Native American Jewelry, to this day?  I plan to explore and question my own relationship within the paradox of these norms and how I partake and what this is beginning to mean to me.

 …Steps to completion and solidarity of process .
