This new painting, Communion was completed as we wrapped up the year 2011. This piece began years ago, at a festival with Even Oldridge of Divine Reflections. He offered to collaborate, and I gladly accepted. He photographed me embodied, then with his special painting technique created a black and white portrait, printed it onto canvas, and sent it to me to paint. Adding color and drawing from the abstract liquid forms this story that longed to be told, the vision took shape. This is another mirror, an invocation, a peek through the veil of what occurs when the offering of this dance is made.
Even’s work, “Wishbringer” and the seed for “Communion” is below. See his work at divinereflections.ca
