The Dead Artists Gallery presents “Southwest Still Life”


Oil-and-Sand on Masonite, signed and dated “Yaszzie (Albert) 1989”.

This still life evokes the warmth and movement of many Southwest Native American paintings. Sandpainting is the art of pouring colored sands, and powdered pigments from minerals or crystals, or pigments from other natural or synthetic sources onto a surface to make a fixed, or unfixed sand painting. This process is also referred to as drypainting and is practiced by many Native American tribes of the United States. This painting probably hails from the Zuni Nation.

26-1/2″ x 22-1/2″ in period bleached wood frame.
