Available by Special Order
A special order like this may be available from the artist. To inquire, click here.
The gorgeous rich tomato red and peacock blue silks would make a great piece even without any painting, but then artist Lorne Honyumptewa knocks it out of the park with his triangular native Puebloan designs. There is just enough white space for the interlocking motifs to breathe without feeling crowded, allowing the simplicity of their perfect linear renderings really stand out. The asymmetrical composition on the backside adds interest while also being visually balanced.
Painted on a rich matte tuxedo silk/wool blend, this fabric has a little more body than our other 100% silk textiles. The shantung silk on the lining adds a touch of color at the collar and cuffs.
Wear "Trilinks"casually over jeans or slacks, or dress up fro a special event over basic black.
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.”
