Star Liana York tells the story of her own discoveries through her art. It reflects her introduction to the native peoples of the area such as Navajo, Apache, Hopi and Pueblo, as well as the wildlife and unique rock art. In the narrative tradition of the American art of the West, her work succeeds in capturing authentic aspects of the past and interpreting historic figures with convincing realism. While she has found the Western idiom to be versatile, powerful and true for her many feelings and ideas, Star York’s willingness to experiment with tradition and her need to continue territorial investigations sometimes compels her to step outside the genre that has brought her success. By choosing to follow unfamiliar paths in a personal search for meaning, she secures the integrity of her artistic career.
