“Five Ravens is a print based on a cedar panel I made for my first solo exhibit, Sacred Geometry. In this show, I restricted myself to only using straight lines and circle fragments as design elements. Unlike my regular designing process, when preparing for this show, I simply played around by arranging circled and straight lines until something caught my eye, and in this design, ravens emerged. The first four are fairly obvious, with their bodies depicted in dark purple. The fifth raven’s body appears at the bottom center in an overhead view with its wings extended to each side. Ravens often symbolize transformation in Salish mythology, so this design represents the transformation of my artwork from fairly traditional Salish art into novel styles and processes.”
– Dylan Thomas
