Soaring 2-Piece Wood Cut

Two Piece – Acrylic on maple wood
26″w x 50″h
Anamalia series

Soaring is a combination of two animals that become one. The bottom piece is for the most part exactly the same as the top piece, but when turned it became something completely different. On the bottom is the Phoenix – hopeful, ever rising from the ashes to be reborn. The top piece is a springing Dragon – spirited, growling and launching forward breathing fire. The Phoenix and the Dragon together create a perpetual dance and find a grace and harmony in their irregular circle they create together.
