20" x 16" - Acrylic on Canvas
During the making of this painting, I imagined a shaman who could perform healing by laying strips of colored light upon the person’s body. Guided by intuition and connection to the divine, the healer would know where to place the pieces of light and which color to use. This resulting vessel shaped object is also a color investigation with translucent, gauzy layers, grounded with black and the deepest burgundy. The transparent viridian and solid white circles symbolize spiritual transformation and healing. Two triangle shapes pointing north and south add a sort of compass.
