River Neisti

River Neisti


36"H x 36"W x 1.5"D.

River Neisti translates from the Icelandic language to River Spark in English. You can see the ignition of life from the source of this river. I do imagine personalities in nature. In fact, Niesti , according to Wiki, is the “spirit or fragment of the divine that resides within a physical body.” I somehow think, consistent with Pacific Northwest lore, there’s a life beyond the photosynthetic cycles we’ve been taught in biology. I’m illustrating it, and it’s energetic. Glazes one atop each other fast forward natural processes and make real the rich, vibrant colors you’d see within the Old Norse Gneisti, or “spark”…. just as if you dissected light with the Prism the way it’s inventor, Isaac Newton did.

The deep 1-1/2" museum mount edges of River Neisti are painted as 3D extensions of the main image.
