Sculpture by Michael Naranjo
Known as The Artist Who Sees With His Hands, Native American sculptor Michael Naranjo lost his eyesight and the full use of one hand as the result of a grenade explosion during the Vietnam War. In spite of his injuries, for decades he has been creating bronze sculptures with a trademark matte black patina. Naranjo lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I had the privilege of viewing his work a few years ago at the Booth Museum of Western Art in Cartersville, Georgia.
“Michael’s work gives people a sense of hope and healing… his story helps us all to realize that anything is possible and that we can all follow our dreams.” (Shanan Campbell Wells)
