I represent crows as spirits, messengers, seers, and prophets.. in my art, they are metaphysical, mystical beings. possessing a heightened intelligence, They live in a magical, mysterious, existential world.. I intend that these transformations agitate the viewer's sense of cultural and social norms.. The crows occupy a special presence, a subliminal reality, a profound ethereal realization of the universe..
The Chinese believe that the crow is a caretaker for ancient sages who were masters in meditation. Crows would watch over these holy men as they meditate, so they didn’t have to leave their bodies unattended while seeking enlightenment.
