Wild At Heart
It is widely believed that when animals visit us in our
dreams, they are there as a spirit guide to show the dreamer the part of their
character that needs attention. ‘Wild At
Heart’ is a collection of oil paintings that look at human characteristics
assigned to spirit animals. The connection with the natural world and animal
kingdom is depicted through repetitive patterns; such as the foliage surrounding
the dreamlike impression of an animal’s head.
A stylised symbol of a DNA strand reaches into a sea of
circles, to enhance the feeling of connection between human and animal; are the
animals’ characteristics embedded in our DNA to form part of our identity, or
do we project our identities on to the animals?
The circles represent all the people and events in our lives spinning
around us like wheels or cogs of a machine.
From a distance, they appear to blend in and are not easily distinguishable
as individual, unique forms; however, some are larger, some darker, some rise
to the top, some drift behind, all are imperfect, much like we are.
All paintings are for sale and prints in a variety of sizes are also available. Please contact me for more details, or visit my Etsy Shop, thank you.
