The most iconic thing about Christmas in Santa Fe? Seeing Shiprock Santa Fe gallery illuminated by the christmas lights on the plaza.
From the artist statement:
My art practice focuses on large-scale labor-intensive drawings that investigate the material qualities of graphite and color pencil whilst creating a dialogue between geometric and gestural abstraction. Pushing the drawings to a point of fluidity similar to painting, the works naturally develop through experimentation via mark-making and intuitive compositional choices without any preconceived notion as to what the final outcome will be. Pencil marks load the paper with layers of graphite creating a visual-dialectic surface between the two-dimensional abstract compositions and the reflective play of light that occurs as one moves about the artwork. The accreted rhythmic strokes visible on the surface give the drawings a palpable almost sculptural mass and energy played out by gestural and linear elements throughout the compositions. Shapes and gestures evoke forms in the Southwestern terrain; lines and colors subconsciously find their way into each piece, reminiscent of patterns in Navajo and Pueblo weavings.

In the current collection of historic pottery at Shiprock Santa Fe there are representative examples from a majority of the Pueblos including Zuni, Hopi, San Ildefonso, Santa Clara, Santa Domingo, Zia, Acoma, and Cochiti. Whether these pieces were made for sale at a Trading Post, or for use at the Pueblo, their forms and painted designs are the same. Each Pueblo utilized locally sourced natural clay and paint making them easily distinguishable. Historic Pueblo Pottery is one of the highest art forms to come from these cultures.
We invite you to view our collection at the gallery or online and encourage you to ask about anything including an evaluation of pottery in your collection.
