Opus no. 7: Honoring the Past
I am, by no means, a traditional Acoma Pueblo artist. However, I draw inspiration by the things I've seen, things I've done, and things I've been taught. I sculpt with hand cut and folded pieces of paper cut from 8.5x11 inch paper. Every piece is folded with a prayer, like the bells on a jingle dress. Yes, all my artwork is made with ONLY paper and a bit of glue. There are no wires, molds, internal supports, etc.
No, I have not and will never use Post-it Notes. I believe that the effort you put into your work, it will give back sevenfold. I don't take shortcuts and stand behind the quality of all my works.
