Just Arrived by William Acheff

William Acheff "Full Moon at Zuni" 8" x 6" Oil 

William Acheff is known for his life like perfection portrayed in his realism paintings.  Acheff's still-life compositions combine historical and cultural artifacts of the Southwest.

William Acheff was born in Anchorage, Alaska in 1947 and has been living in Taos, New Mexico since 1973. "I paint Indian objects," he says, "because I relate to them, maybe because I have some Indian blood and because I was close to my grandmother, but that's not the point.  It's the ethnic quality of the artifacts.  There's a purity in them.  Nothing's manufactured by machine. There sits a pot. The whole mood of what went into making that pot is a story, and that's what I want to capture."
