About The Artist:

Tammy Garcia is a Native American artist who lives and works in Taos, New Mexico. She is a member of the Pueblo Tafoya family of potters who resided in Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico. The Tafoya trademark is highly polished blackware. Garcia continues to work in the family tradition, but incorporates modernized shapes, nontraditional styles, and themes beyond the Pueblo iconography into her work.

After learning traditional pottery skills and techniques during her childhood in Santa Clara Pueblo, Garcia went on to study cosmetology before getting a job at an art gallery in Taos, New Mexico. The artist was inspired to begin making pottery again and soon began experimenting with bronze and glass. Through her exploration of new designs and use of imagery from popular culture, Garcia is changing the perception of contemporary Native American art as well as expanding the potential of traditional pottery. In her sculptural work, Garcia is informed by 20th century art movements such as Art Deco and Bauhaus as well as her own Pueblo traditional motifs.

This example of Garcia's sculptural work is a type of bronze collage that brings together a variety of shapes, textures, and patinas. This design may reference the collages of the Cubists working in the first quarter of the 20th century, who pasted newspaper pieces, colored paper, and other materials to their canvases. Garcia's use of geometry also echoes that of the Cubists, who wanted to depict a subject from multiple viewpoints, thus segmenting their works into a distillation of geometric shapes and patterns.
