Incarnation of Woman

This piece is the dreamscape de résistance in my Magical Realism period. I call it the Incarnation of Woman because in this style of art, I do not purposefully paint anything, I find what is there. And there she was, this woman, or I should say Woman, big and bold, containing all the worlds. Her hands hold adders and wolves, her swinging belt holds the ancestors from the cradle of humanity, below her skirt lies the unconscious self, the dreamer dreaming the dream — as well as new life. Around the edges, are Runic characters that tell her story even more. Due to the weight and almost 3-D texture of the mixed-media dreamscapes, the originals are one-of-a-kind and have a higher price point than my oil and acrylic paintings. That said, for those who would like a reproduction, please know that all the dreamscape pieces (and all artwork created pre-2013) were scanned on an immense “Cruise Scanner” in Los Angeles, literally the biggest and best scanner in the US. The detail and resolution of the prints is beyond imaginable and the texture, vibrancy and dimensionality come through in incredible accuracy. This large dramatic mystical piece weighs close to 200 pounds and is done on a 3-inch-deep wooden platform and sits in a floater frame that beautifully enhances the artwork.
