SPIRIT ANIMALS: Color Digital Prints | 12 Images


In the style of Huichol folk art, the wild animals in this portfolio exist both as images from reality and as imagined spirit animals. I became intrigued with the artistic representation of animals as spirits after being introduced to Huichol folk art, whose hallucinatory representations are divine offerings to denizens of the spirit world.  The series is based on my
 original animal photographs that were taken in Central and North America then painted in-silico. The vibrancy of color in each photograph evokes the traditional style of Huichol yarn paintings and beaded gourds.The viewer is invited to see the subject matter as being real, yet distinctly other worldly and archetypal.

In 2012, many of these images comprised an exhibit at ibiCASA Artistas Exposicion, Ibiza, Spain.
