BEST OF SHOW winner,
"Shock Of The New West" 2020,
Tubac Center for the Arts & San Diego Museum of Art online Spring 2023

My vision started with a search for a door, and I wanted to use the best parts that I brought to Tucson. The door came thru the Universe, the full size warrior came thru inspiration. There are plenty instances of 4's and 8's throughout. It has a real heavy duty hanging wire on back, and has side legs so it can be freestanding. Severe weight in size and metaphor!

"Red American America"
$5000 6'x2'x5" 70 lb.

This Indian warrior is a mix of Western and Mardi Gras Indians, with 50 small metaphors and 1 big one! The expansion of the West and American manufacturing products, used to depict the cause, effect, and consequences. Started with an old store sign that had a red arrow on it, and layered plenty on! Spinning shoulder and boot spurs!

“Chief Thozi -
Protection Totem"
$5000 8'x18"x5" 80 lb.
Towering totem of found objects on vintage patinaed panel, with decoupage of an impovershed family at the bottom, in a hogan. The rake guards, doesn't imprison - and the hatchets point out, protecting the family and the 21st century.

"Chief Thunderbird"
$5000 10'x10'x3' about 750 lb.
*NOW living at THC in Salida, CO., but for sale! Now has a REALLY rough and weathered patina, so you get a deal on it!
