Here is a gorgeous new piece by Shelley Patrick that radiates metallic shimmery elegance. She has beautifully combined symbols from her Creek cultural heritage with modern, urban-looking shapes in a contemporary composition. The double winged shapes and the emblem of symmetric designs with concentric circles on the upper back are of Muscogee origin, while the loop-ended lines and broken diagonal lines and diamond shapes lend a modern sensibility.
"Yukupu" means walk in Creek language, and Patrick imagines the floating impressions of a relaxing walk through nature with the composition. She has kept the quiet tones of the metallic silks with her bronze and coppery paint, then adds a surprise punch of color with the apple green. It shows a unique sense of design to combine these elements so successfully and make Yukupu such a stand out piece.Silver shantung silk shell
