Animism Gallery 2

Primal and Spiritual

Paintings in the Animism gallery study elements of human, animal and spiritual nature. Animism is the belief that all things in nature have souls; trees, animals, storms, etc. are all “alive.” These souls may exist apart from their physical presence, and reflect the strength/health of their corporeal counterparts. This artwork attempts to capture the essence of those nature spirits — without regard for accurate depiction of the physical form.
