About

Pollen Keeper II, aluminum sculpture, Navajo, purple, Melanie Yazzie, IAIA Mocna powder coated aluminum purple MELANIE YAZZIE, who has been represented by Glenn Green Galleries since 1994, is talented as a sculptor, painter and printmaker. She is a university professor who teaches two-dimensional art and is much sought after as an informative and insightful lecturer. She often takes part in collaborative art projects with indigenous artists in New Zealand, Siberia, Australia, Canada, Mexico and Japan, and in addition to teaching at the Institute of American Indian Arts, the College of Santa Fe, University of Arizona, and now at the University of Colorado, Boulder, Yazzie has conducted classes at the Pont-Aven School of Art in France. Of her journeys she says: “It’s at these gatherings and traveling from place to place that fuels my work and revitalizes my spirit!” My artwork is culturally based in my heritage of being a Diné (Navajo) person. The artworks stem from the thought and belief that what we create must have beauty and harmony from within ourselves, from above, below, in front, behind and from our core. We are taught to seek out beauty and create it with our thoughts and prayers. I feel that when I am making my art, be it a print, a painting or a sculpture, I begin by centering myself and thinking it all out in a “good way”, which is how I was taught from an early age. My work speaks about travel and transformation.- Melanie Yazzie
