Magic & Divinity

At this time in my life, of pondering the vastness and great creations we manifest everyday, many of my friends were about to give birth. The magic of giving birth to a new entity, friend, soul mate, and/or a human being that one will be sharing a huge part of their life with, was provoking enough for me to pay attention; and I was so moved to reveal the place and passageway of the divine moment.

These works were created on two separate canvases made out of masonite with 3” boards as sides. The center of these 2 sides was hollowed out with my sander to create the passage of life and the place that all things come from. The inside was either gold leafed, or silver leafed for a smooth existence and a place to pollinate for the future of us.
