First trained as a painter at the University of Arizona School of Art, Winslow-based artist Marlowe Katoney (Diné) was taught to weave by his maternal grandmother in 2010.

Since then, Katoney has used a hybrid approach to his weaving practice, combining elements from painting, color theory, perspective, and composition with traditional Navajo iconography and designs.

The subjects of Katoney’s work are varied, as he literally and figuratively weaves traditional imagery with contemporary pictorial practices. Many works directly relate to events in his life, while others are drawn from larger concepts related to popular culture, street art, nature, family, and Navajo culture.

As the artist explains, “For me, being an artist is an ongoing pursuit of freedom. It’s of the aesthetic of not being limited to the notion of having to abide by the popular [perceptions] of beauty or to create something readily identifiable as being ‘Navajo’ but instead it’s to deconstruct old ideas to create new ones… Addressing subject matter and composition in this way contextualizes traditional Navajo weaving into contemporary art.”

Pulse features approximately 30 weavings and paintings created over the span of 15 years that are drawn from both private and public collections. This exhibition is curated by Dr. Anya Montiel, Curator and Native American Art Historian, and Olivia Miller, UAMA Director and Curator.

This exhibition is made possible through support from the Terra Foundation for American Art.
