SPIRIT ANIMALS: Color Digital Prints | 15 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 subject matteris meant to be seen as real, yet distinctly other worldly and archetypal.

Each image is a painted digital image, printed directly onto a brushed aluminum surface using UV fine art inks for a satin finish.  The shimmering aluminum remains visible around the print as a mat and is framed in a 3/4” wide by 2 1/8” deep matte black frame, ready to hang. Each limited edition print is signed and numbered.
