SHIJÉÍ/MY HEART: MIXED MEDIA WORKS BY CAROLYN LEE ANDERSON
Shijéí/My Heart is a brand new series of mixed media works by Carolyn Lee Anderson, a Minnesota-based artist of Navajo descent. This new series is inspired by the stories and artistic traditions of her family. Acrylic paintings on canvas, patterned fabric, and Navajo weaving are stitched together and lashed to loom-inspired frames. Each material has its own history, and each art form is tied to her maternal lineage. By combining them, Carolyn acknowledges and examines these various historical threads and how they have affected and influenced her life.
