What an exciting new design! Honyumptewa has painted many dragonflies for us, both the stylized symbolic ones as here, and perfectly outlined realistic ones too. In Southwest Native traditions they are a sacred creature that dwells near life giving sources of water. Here, the artist has painted two vertical rows of Hopi dragonfly symbols in lavender, yellow, aqua and red on each side of the front, increasing their size from top to bottom and alternating the directions they face to add interest and give a lovely upward movement. On each sleeve cuff another dragonfly is painted, one brilliant red and one aqua, using his signature blend of symmetry paired with non symmetry.
On the back he has made a foursome of dragonflies in a composition that echoes the sacred zia sun symbol of the Puebloan peoples and the New Mexican state flag. This grouping is placed on an exquisitely rendered depiction of a Milky Way star pattern running along the spine from top to bottom, giving a magical sort of beauty to this piece.
What a show stopper to wear this homage to the sacred dragonfly over basic black with some chunky colored or silver jewelry! The black tuxedo silk has a lovely shimmery finish which adds to the special look.

Lorne Honyumptewa's Bio

Hopi/Picuris Pueblo, New Mexico

“I am a Hopi/Picuris 2D artist and illustrator. I was born in 1979 in Tuba City, Arizona. My mother is Diane Caroline Sine, from Picuris Pueblo, and she works with traditional micaceous pottery. My father is a well-known Hopi Kachina doll carver from Lower Moenkopi, Stetson Honyumptewa. I have been into art all my life, growing up with my father especially. I got a lot of inspiration from him and being around galleries that featured all types of art. Looking at Southwest Art magazines always got my mind going, especially natural scenes, sunsets and landscapes.”

“I graduated from Pojoaque High School in New Mexico and realized I had a talent that I was too modest to announce or display. I wanted to go to the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe, but Pojoaque High School was as far as I got. I like to work with pen and pencil for fine details and creating art that satisfies the eyes and takes time and energy from the mind, body and spirit. I want my art to bring good energy and vibes to all who encounter it, for we are all one.”

“In 2008, I got my first blue ribbon for a pen and ink drawing of Kachinas in a ceremony at one of the Hopi Mesas. I got pumped up to do more, and add color to it, and got another blue ribbon for a White Bear Kachina in a winter wonderland in the San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff, Arizona. Since then, I have been in Indian Markets at Santa Fe.”
