Wildflower Sigils and Mantras: Casa Piedra Road
Marfa Book Company
The images in this series were collected on a daylong drive south from Marfa, Texas on Casa Piedra Road in the spring of 2015. The season was known for a historic wildflower bloom that followed an unusually wet winter. The photos are digitally cut, pasted and collaged into sigils and mantras with the intention of warding off depression and fostering communion with the plant mind. Images are printed by Color Wheel Digital with archival inks on Hahnemuhle Bamboo paper. Prints are in unlimited addition, available at $100 and $150.
Images from the October 11, 2014 Contra Text group exhibition at the Corder Hardware & Lumber gallery in Marfa, TX.
