Tselani / Terrain Catalog - The Tapestries of D.Y. Begay
About the Artist: "DY Begay...is a fourth-generation weaver. Growing up around female weavers, she was exposed to herding and shearing sheep, carding and spinning wool, harvesting plants for dyeing, and learning to weave in the traditional Navajo fashion. Begay’s tapestries encompass her interpretation of the natural beauty and descriptive colors of the Navajo reservation and commemorate her family’s tradition by using the unique and local vegetation, reflecting on her Navajo identity. This spiritual connection to the plants yields the natural colors that are transformed into evocative land formations on her loom." (United States Artists, 2018)
