In preparation for his 2017 annual one man show at James Ratliff Gallery, David K. John explains, “I’m working away; been busy with other shows but now I’m concentrating on my show in Sedona, and I’ll be concentrating on Female Deities or Yeis. Not too many Navajo artists paint these images. It’s just to remember my Mom who passed recently and this is a way to honor her and all females. There are lots of stories that involve females in the creation of our Dine’ people so I’ll be researching these stories and make them my own interpretations on canvas. My main concentration will be around Beauty Way ceremonies which are only done during the Spring around the same time as my show so everything will come together at that time. Everything will be fresh and new ideas.”
