Thomas Pecore Weso (M.A.), of the Bear and Turtle Clans, grew up surrounded by the rich artistic tradition of his Menominee and Potawatomi Indian family in northern Wisconsin. His Grandfather Moon Wesho, a prominent leader, and Uncle Monroe (Buddy) Weso were his first instructors in wood carving, drawing, plant lore, and spirituality. This Woodlands cultural background influences Weso’s artistic choice of vivid palette and balance of plant-derived designs against a background that reverses into foreground. This dynamism is apparent in a sequence of drawings and paintings set in the Arizona desert north of Phoenix.
Available for purchaseare prints from the Bloody Basin Road series (8 X 11, $20). Bloody Basin Road is a backcountry road that runs through the Mazatzal Mountains, high-desert hill country, wooded canyons, rocky expanses, grassy ranges, the Verde River, and Seven Springs—all within Tonto National Forest. The road takes its name from the iron ore pigment that stains rocks and soil a deep red hue.
Also available are professional prints from the Shaman series (12 X 18", $25). Samples are on the tomweso.com website.
