About

Marina Eskeets is a Diné (Navajo) conceptual artist from Naná'áztiin, New Mexico (The Big Curve, NM, Navajo Reservation). Eskeets received a Bachelors in Fine Arts, with a major in Studio Arts at Santa Fe University of Art and design. Her work is stimulated from her childhood herding her grandmothers’ sheep, in a region directly affected by a uranium disaster. Unrestricted to any medium, she allows her ideas to be presented in the most appropriate technique. She has created a performance that interacts with her community, projected video onto a stretched loom, carved patterns onto a mountain side, constructed three-dimensional cardboard masks, and recently sketched illustrations onto deer skin using thread. Currently Eskeets' work is centered on energy extraction within Dinétah and identity through the unadorned of the everyday.
