Houser, Allan

Artist Bio

Allan Houser was the first child born in Oklahoma to Geronimo’s Chiricahua Apache after their release in 1914 from decades of detention in Florida, and the strength and dignity of his ancestors and their travails flows through his sculptures. Combining Modernist abstraction with traditional Native American elements, Houser’s simplified figures inhabit both the plane we all live on and a spiritual plane. Life, work and worship are made of the whole cloth of purpose; they are inseparable aspects of divinity.
