Still thinking about my college project I am adding this picture painted by another of my favorite artists Victoria Crowe, she is the second of four artists that I have chosen for my brief. I love the atmosphere of her art, and again symbolism is a major factor in my attraction to her work as well as the
multi layering/elements. My ideas are still very loosely formed at this stage, but will be a continuation of my previous work. I am still thinking about the circle of life, the inevitability of decay and death, but also rebirth in particular as viewed by varied indigenous peoples and religions. The superstitions and myth surrounding certain animals and birds will play a major role and I am interested in the part played by
animals and animal spirits, Shamanism in particular.
