Ana Maria Gower: Transfusion #17(Print)
12 x 16" Giclee Print
These pieces are my attempts to illustrate the connection between potential and actualized. I wanted to demonstrate primordial unity of all living, the type we get a glimpse of by looking at the tree of evolution, or, perhaps, for split second losing our egos. Humans with animal heads, or animals with human bodies, they are summoned from an alternative reality to demonstrate the unity of the origin of all life, with no end and no beginning, transfused with potential.
"The most effective representation of the ideas of life’s path and potential can be found in a simple tree branch. In the process of development, it selects a path out of multitude and each choice contains new alternatives. I started noticing branching structures all around me. A very straightforward observation, that became the impetus behind the “Transfusion” series, was focused on the fact that everything – from a body to a culture – contains such branching structures, both literally and symbolically. To me it was an evidence of a transfused potential, that seems to be the foundational quality of our reality." - Ana Maria Gower
