During a personal retreat at the home of a friend at Black Butte Ranch, Susana conceived Kamamuls' Moon Shadow. While watching an eagle dip and fly over the meadow, her artistic imagination captured light and shadow as the eagle shape shifts from winged one to dancer. Note how Eagle and Dancer merge into one in the shadow of the full Moon. 22" x 30" acrylic / oil stick on archival paper.
About Susana Santos:
The artwork of Native American Artist, Susana Santos (1954-2006) Tygh/Yakama was recently released to the market place. I have the honor to make available her original paintings, serigraphs, and fine art reproductions.
As a painter, sculptor, and writer, Susana Santos was dedicated to interpreting the rich legacy of Native people. She was also a tireless advocate for the rights of indigenous children and tribal fishing. Her artwork is a vibrant depiction of the Native world using rich colors to create dynamic landscapes and a deep narrative that illuminates historic and contemporary memories. From her signature hats to her inspiring giggle, Susana was a remarkable creator of beauty with an authentic vision.
Susana's serigraphs were hand-pulled and created on archival paper. Her original paintings are in excellent condition and have been carefully stored. Because of Susana's untimely passing, there is a limited amount of work available.
