Piece description from the artist
This is based on a dream. It was just before dawn, and I was running up a hill through a winter forest. I came to the top of the hill, and there was an open area. I looked up to the trees and there were many barn owls looking down. I realized at that moment I had come there to receive their decision.
The artwork of Skip Myers explores the world of dreams, symbolism, mythology, various religious belief systems, the human condition and our shared collective consciousness with all sentient beings. One art critic described him as an oneironaut, or one who explores alternative realities. These works are strongly influenced by personal stories, events from life painted on canvas, filtered through a process of organic abstraction and emotion, and built with vivid color and esoteric symbols.
