Acrylic by Nikki Rakov ⏤ 36 in x 30 in"My paintings explore sacred areas where the veil between the worlds is thin, where we are offered a momentary glimpse past our own time into another world. Using acrylic, gouache and mixed media on paper and canvas, my paintings illuminate sacred space by weaving composite scenes of nature together with figures to explore spirituality, magic, and mythology. Bold and vivid colors evoke forgotten tales and ancient myths that are resurrected in these places as spirit guides gather to remind us that we are never alone. Through memories of events that have shaped my spiritual life along with inspiration from research of mythology and folktales, these paintings venerate sacred space as locations of great power, where visitors bring gifts and reconnect to nature gods and spirits through acts of devotion, prayer and through magic. Nature is interpreted through memory and imagination, reminding one of the mysteries of nature and how in stillness and contemplation we can glimpse other worlds and connect with the divine feminine."
