The inspiration for my collection of work came from a trip my lovely girlfriend Amalia and I took to Santa fe New Mexico in the summer. The city undergoes a long tourist season throughout the year and there is block after block of all genres of art being showcased yo , it was really beautiful. What inspired me were the Kachina dolls , the Kachina are spirit beings in western Pueblo cosmology and religious practices. One description is:
“The central theme of the kachina [religion] is the presence of life in all objects that fill the universe. Everything has an essence or a life force, and humans must interact with these or fail to survive.“”
This was something I could relate to and personally felt my own work blindly heading towards a similar direction, a kind of psychedelic anthropomorphism going on in the kachina dolls.There are many little stories personal and random within these paintings, but one overall theme is present and that there is a tiny u.f.o. floating by all the heads of each figure represented. The reason for the tiny u.f.o.’s is the fact that they are tiny u.f.o.’s , and I am sorry for such a vague explanation, but that is just about as much sense as I make from it. The mediums I used for this series were acrylic,acrylic ink, pencil and colored pencil. (flyer design by Seth Conley)
