Flight of the Shaman|
Oil on canvas 2012
30cm x 40cm
A bird, resembling the mythical Phoenix, spreads its wings whilst also assuming the form of sun rays catching an Avebury megalith. The title refers to the Phoenix being a shamanic spirit exploring the Interworld. The juxtaposition of different objects gives the feeling of being in a dream; perhaps this is what images are going through the human figure’s (Shaman’s?) mind? The playing cards add up to 9; a number the artist considers lucky in a personal context.
