The Future is Here & Now

Fortune TellerInspired by a fortune teller’s symbol, this painted wooden hand went into the Gypsies, Vagabonds & Wild Mad Women exhibition. These photos were taken before I’d finished…later on, I added the words “Here & Now” to the golden circle in the center of the palm.

Red and black horses, symbols from Russian folk art, run around the base of the arm. Traditionally, they represent Day and Night.

  1. This is very cool! I love the symbolism and the colours. I don’t know much about Russian mythology or folk art but I recognized the influence right away as my Grandfather had some decorative plates in that style. I love that your art work for this exhibition is so varied and really showcases different facets of your creativity.
