Heart of the Forest 2014 Acrylic on Wood 30"x30"
“Heart of the Forest” focuses again on the union of Polarity. Representing the Masculine force is a hybrid, shamanic forest spirit. Behind him the Moon represents the feminine. Her rings ripple out to intercept his crown of antlers. Through their union, they bring forth new life, germinating the pine seed keeping the cycles of the forest in motion. At the top of his crown lies a serpent and mushroom, representing the inherent wisdom of nature guiding the process as it unfolds. The 8/13 fibonacci spiral dynamics of the pinecone have been used to create the portal through which the seed is born.
