Shaman 3 by Larry Davis. Media: oil and cold wax on studio wrapped canvas.
Shaman III is part of series of works celebrating the traditions of both the indigenous peoples of North American as well as that of Japan. The mystical powers inherent in the Shaman allows us to imagine the shapes, colors and textures utilized in the various ceremonies and magical services involved with native culture. On a more technical level this piece makes use of the versatility of style that is enabled through the combination of oil paints with cold wax.
