Gatekeeper © 2017
Acrylic on canvas. 28 x 20 inches. The sacred bison is the Gatekeeper of the portal through which all of mankind must now pass. Gatekeeper appears at a time of collective chaos and the unraveling of the biosphere, blocking passage into our destiny path of peace, prosperity and renewal. Gatekeeper demands that the species awaken to the interconnection of all life while surrendering violence and economies of exploitation. The Gatekeeper is encircled by water, the gift of all gifts, but bars the way into the portal until we face our own shadow and take responsibility for what we have created. The rainbow serpent with horns and ears represents this unprecedented and necessary crisis of consciousness. We are being asked to expand our sense of self to include the other; we are being asked to come into harmony with the song of the universe.
