Duhon James was born in Tuba City, Arizona, on the Navajo Nation. He is a recent alumnus from the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in ceramics and printmaking. In 2011, he received his Associate of Arts in Fine Arts at Dine College, Tsaile, Arizona. James has shown his works at Eggman and Walrus Gallery Emporium in Santa Fe and Balzer Contemporary Edge Gallery at the Institute of American Indian Arts. He now resides in Ganado, Arizona. Artist Statement: “My artworks visualize the Navajo lifestyle and include a rotating cast of stars, corn, water, teeth, Hogan, and universe. I have observed the cosmos through the seasons and listened to stories from my grandma and parents. My prints reflect my culture, the role of women, the role of prayer, the role of time. Time is a never-ending cycle. I muse about our place in the universe and the afterlife. Will we all become stars like the star people?”
