Alex Jacobs (Karoniaktahke) is Mohawk Nation Turtle Clan and an activist, broadcaster, musician, poet and visual artist. He is based in Santa Fe, NM. Originally from Akwesasne, his collage-paintings combine the quilt-making traditions of his Mohawk mother and grandmother with elements from NM. Using his mother’s calico scraps and commercial packaging from American Spirit cigarettes and Land-O-Lakes butter wrappers, he developed a kind of decoupage technique, gluing and varnishing the fabric to create his urban-infused art. Jacobs is a graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts and holds a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute. Print 16"X11"
