Shaman’s Enigma


As a photorealist, I am inclined to be precise in my planning and execution. The words “loosening up” are seldomly spoken. But with this piece, I permitted each inspiration to occur on its own. After stretching a black canvas the initial inspiration was for clouds, first on top, then on the bottom; as the areas began to merge a circle formed. Puzzled by the process, I allowed portions of a face to assemble within the circle with certain pieces taking the form of butterflies, only to become whole and vibrant as they escaped the confines of the ellipse. The viewer is tasked with the interpretation.
