Ottawa, Canada. 2015. Paintings inspired by Amanacer's time spent in Egyptian and Mexican deserts, created in a mix of wood, canvas, oil acrylic, spray paint and found objects. These decorative cow skulls, rusted metal scraps, frangipani flowers and treasure maps evoke the sacred rituals of death, life and the benchmark moments that come in between. It's about finding beauty in unexpected places, and enjoying the journey through deserts and lush times alike.
These are examples of the full Desert Gold Series that was featured at Amanacer's 2015 annual Ottawa Art Show. All the pieces were purchased and now adorn homes across Canada and the United States.
