"Vine of Spirits"

“Vine of Spirits”

2012 acrylic on wood 30”x30 ~ Original available.

In this painting, the Ayahuasca vine takes an anthropomorphic shamanic form presenting itself to the viewer.

The head of the shaman is wreathed in feathers. Flowers blossom from the heart and a hummingbird sips nectar from blooms in the throat.

The chest morphs into the jaguar forms, flowing into the body of an anaconda. The tail tapers off into the vine in bloom.

The being encompasses the beautiful and enlightening as well as the less-comfortable and visceral which are necessary and equal in their value.
