About The Artwork

After reading the book, “Initiation” by Elisabeth Haish, I was inspired to paint an Egyptian themed piece. Blue means life, birth, rebirth, and fertility. Blue symbolized protection in Egypt as well as the Nile River, which had its own symbolism of fertility and nourishment. In Egyptian mythology, Sekhmet is a warrior goddess and a goddess of healing. A lioness and protector of the pharaohs, Sekhmet continued to protect them into the afterlife. A solar deity, the daughter of Ra, she was associated with the goddesses Hathor and Bastet. She bears the Uraeus, or snake which associates her with Wadjet and royalty, and the solar disk. In the center is the Egyptian falcon god Horus. Every pharaoh of Egypt is an incarnation of Horus. Horus as a Hawk is the god of the sky and a symbol of divine kingship - the protector of the ruler. The scarab beetle at the base of the piece is a symbol of immortality, resurrection, transformation, and protection. Egyptian symbols cover the chest plate, such as "infinity" and "ankh." Written records of the Egyptian language are from about 3400 BC, and was spoken until the late 17th century AD. Known as the Key of Life, the ankh is central to the piece. In the shape of a cross to symbolize the word "life", it expands into the tree branches above. The Eye of Horus at the top of the canvas also signifies protection, good health, and royal power. Horus was the national deity of Egypt. It was akin to the evil eye symbol. Interestingly, the Eye of Horus also depicts six senses: smell, sight, taste, hearing and touch as well as thought. My personal addition is the Triskele, or three-legged spiral at the base of the ankh. Movement, action, cycles and progress are a theme throughout the piece.

I have a profound respect for artistic transcendence through mythology. My art is representative of many different religious symbols, mostly gods and images considered to be sacred. Inspired by books, my personal life, spiritual symbols and their dimensionality, and histories, I paint the emotions they invoke in me. I am heavily influenced by philosophy, Architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright, sacred geometry, Egyptian history, Hinduism, and Buddhist images. My style is perfectly imperfect, wabi sabi. Perfection is a fleeting goal and for me and painting has been a journey into acceptance of myself imperfect, as is. As a lover of architecture, balance and polarity, sacred geometry speaks to my soul. History and world religions are interwoven themes throughout all of these pieces.
