"Tai chi-Paracas"

a series of 90 paintings

acrylic, watercolor on paper


This series was inspired by the "Mantle of Paracas", a 2000 year old Peruvian tapestry held in the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Each painting responds to one of the 90 icons that surround the perimeter of the textile. Silhouettes expressing my modern interests in tai chi, drumming and other activities are overlaid on top of pre-columbian priests, shamans, warriors and mythical characters shown in the original tapestry.
