"Untitled" 2005   

Tom Huff, Seneca Cayuga

Alabaster, Height 8 inches

Using the colors and textures in the alabaster, Tom Huff  coaxes from the stone an impressionistic image of mother and child dressed in traditional cloth clothing. On the back side is a tendril of leaves and flowers.


Huff is a stone sculptor working in a variety of styles, and themes, traditional and contemporary. He also creates mixed media / found object sculpture. In much of his work, Huff addresses the current situation of Native Americans mixing cultural, stereotypical, political and autobiographical elements. He began carving stone, wood, and antler at home, inspired by the artists at the Cattaraugus Seneca Nation. He later attended the Institute of American Indian Arts (AFA, 1979) in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the Rhode Island School of Design (BFA, 1984).
