"Wish Upon a Falling Star" acrylic painting by Susana Santos

$4,800.00


This painting was created during the last two years of Susana's life. Susana was well known for her depiction of Native People in traditional regalia. As Susana moved forward in her artistic life, the main figures in her paintings became more ethereal in nature. She studied astronomy, watched the night sky, and listened to the wind. She meditated. From these experiences her work expanded from earthbound to cosmic.

48" x 60" acrylic on canvas 

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.
