Portal into the Root of the Soul

Image of Nunqui, Shuar goddess of the earth, holding a bowl, surrounded by vines.Portal into the Root of the Soul, oil on canvas, 36″x36″, 2012.

My journey into the Amazon Rainforest a decade ago still informs my art. This is a painting of the Shuar goddess Nunqui. She is opening a portal into the earth and into the soul.

She is holding a bowl of Chicha, a drink made from fermented manioc root.

The spirit of the earth and the spirit of the human are interconnected in physical form. The world is as we dream it.
