My newest creation is a precursor to five paintings I’ll be showing at
Sea Affaire in July. Artist Solace Wonder has chosen a fine group of artists to
accompany his second round at The Phirana Shop in Seattle and I’ve taken the
opportunity to dive into shells, nutibranches and sea slugs which are
beautifully strange and captivating creatures.
This piece is available for purchase
at www.animaanimus.org. If you’d like a sneak peak of the paintings I’ll be creating for the show, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add you to my collector’s preview.
“And you see that every time i made a further division, up came more boxes based on these divisions until I had a huge pyramid of boxes. Finally you see that while I was splitting the cycle up into finer and finer pieces, I was also building a structure. This structure of concepts is formally called a hierarchy and since ancient times has been a basic structure for all Western knowledge.” ~Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
In many of my
astrology pieces, I have hidden symbols within textures of the piece.
Can you spot the symbol for Venus? I chose a moth as the representation
of Libra because of the balanced, symmetrical quality of its wings.
The symbol of Libra’s scales is based on the Scales of Justice held by
Themis, the Greek personification of divine law and custom. Libra was
known in Babylonian astronomy as the Claws of The Scorpion.
