Artist's description:

For me, inspiration comes from many places -- the natural world, archaeology, history, science, even cartoons. I love the idea of telling a story in one image.

“Dream Walkers” (DW) was born from my love of ancient cultures. I love thinking about the world as it used to be and capturing those elements to bring into our own spaces. DW is a composition based on Fremont petroglyphs found at Dinosaur National Park, Colorado, and several other sites. The meaning of many petroglyphs is elusive. In one interpretation, lizards are associated with the dream state because as they bask in the sun, they appear to be in a dream-trance.

I created this piece by altering techniques from other art forms and combining them in unique ways. I apply multiple layers of plaster, using a hand-made form to fashion the images. I then color the plaster with powder pigments.

DW is intended to be a beautiful art piece on its own visual merits that recalls a time before modern writing, but if you want to pause a moment longer, I hope the image makes you ponder our world.

Materials used:

plaster, glaze, powder pigments
