Jimmy Trujillo - Straw Inlay

Straw artist, Jimmy Trujillo, has done extensive research on the subject of straw marquetry history. He believes that the practice of this art in New Mexico predates the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. The earliest piece that has been found to date was crafted in the early 1800s. Trujillo believes that many of the designs and motifs on some of the early straw work display Native American influences. The areas around Santa Ana Pueblo and the area around San Juan Pueblo were historically the principle manufacturing sites for this art.

In northern New Mexico, during the eighteenth-century, gold was a precious commodity. However, its use on religious items for worship was impractical. The necessity to have items with a look of decorated gold led to the creation of adhering straw to wood to create inlaid and encrusted religious objects. Has there ever been a time where you improvised with materials you had instead of the materials you wanted?

'The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.”
Alan Bennett

Advances arrived for SHARING CODE by Patrick Frank. The book tells the story of an early computer program--Art1--developed in 1968 by UNM electrical engineer Richard Williams in collaboration with Art Department chair and kinetic artist Charles Mattox. The program would be used by a group of artists as a new medium for creating art. The most famous was Frederick Hammersley who was a professor of art at UNM. (Photo credit: Lisa Neal)
