Religion of The Congo

This painting captures a moment of primal ceremony. Bush spirits and forces less knowable are called upon as the forms confer secret knowledge to one another, all the while drawing power from the natural world in which they live and have their being.
This piece was inspired, in part, by my lifelong love of African tribal art and the worldview that informs it - being in touch with mysterious, primal forces which reside just beyond the fields we know.
