Item description for Judy Tuwaletstiwa: Mapping Water by Judy Tuwaletstiwa...

Judy Tuwaletstiwa combines paint and canvas with sand, clay, fiber and sticks--materials particular to the Black Mesa in Northern Arizona, where she lived for several years on a Hopi reservation. In Mapping Water, Tuwaletstiwa investigates the embrace of uncharted terrains. The first section begins with a definition of the word "genesis," alongside small paintings that relate (and don't relate) to various parts of the text, evoking thoughts on the "genesis" of ideas. Subsequent sections continue this exploration with content that varies from an iconic photograph from the Holocaust to a series of images of a dead crow that Tuwaletstiwa dissected and reassembled with curious results. Tuwaletstiwa writes, "This desert landscape opens the unconscious to me. In my work, whether writing or painting, I seek a language that embodies the elusive and mysterious images that resonate from the deep strata of the unknown." In addition to Ms. Tuwaletstiwa's international reputation as a painter, she is the recipient of a Lannan Foundation Literary Residency in Marfa, Texas for The Canyon Poem, a limited-edition book published in 1999.

Reviews - What do customers think about Judy Tuwaletstiwa: Mapping Water?

beautiful book  Jul 29, 2008
This book is one that everyone should have in their library. Soulful, sensitive and brave.
A gorgeous book  May 20, 2008
This book is a total treasure. It's all about seeing the world through the eyes of an amazing artist. The crow that gets recycled into beautiful art is going to make you look at everything in a new way. What a magical experience to read this work of art.
"Mapping Water" should win every possible graphic design award!  Feb 7, 2008
"Mapping Water" is a rare and shimmering book in which art, and its realization on the page, become one. Exquisitely elegant and powerful, it is a pioneering work of memoir, freeing its readers to chart their own revelations without boundary. Tuwaletstiwa's work, so wondrously spacious and palpably textured, sings of constant transformation, culminating in a crow transcending death to be reborn through the heart and hands of the artist. It is one of the most deeply stirring books I have ever read.
