Arrival/DepartureFrom the Artist - Cloudface:
Arrival/Departure is about the cycle of the seasons and the blessing brought by hummingbirds. Hummingbirds bring with them the warmth and abundance of the spring and summer. They protect their territory while simultaneously showing their strength and beauty. Hummingbirds also warn us of the coming cold with their departure, telling us it's time to prepare for the winter ahead. Even though they leave and take with them the blessings of abundance, we know they will be back to continue the cycle. The hummingbirds are entering the room from the window and making their way through the room before exiting.
Patrick Cloudface Burnham (Dine/Hopi) is a lifelong painter. Cloudface came from a family of artists and jewelrs and was encouraged at an early age to create art. Cloudface's work is a mixture of traditional, contemporary and graffiti art. His native upbringing and immersion in hip-hop culture influence his approach as he blends the two worlds in his work. You can find Cloud's works in art galleries all over the southwest in Santa Fe, Taos, Albuquerque, Las Cruces and Phoenix.
