Inherently Sacred is a series of mixed media prints inspired by the sustaining relationship that nature has with humanity and the sacredness of this bond. The prints present an interconnected vision with the world of nature as a fully integrated ecosystem and as an inseparable part of our body systems. I communicate this holistic vision in my art through blending layers and blurring the lines between body/nature, micro/macro and sacred/mundane. The imagery in my work is a symbolic language influenced by eclectic sources including ecology, religious artwork, anatomical diagrams, botanical illustration, and mapping. The arch shape is the container for the imagery. I chose this shape because it references architecture found in holy places: church windows, temples, the dome of the heavens, grottos, altars, and altarpieces.
