Human Heart Made of Plants

Human Heart Made of Plants, 2016
pastel on black paper
20 x 26 inches

When we ignore the realms beyond consciousness , we ignore our connections to the larger community of living beings, most of which, over immense spans of time, have lived and died without once awakening. Plants are reminders of the structures that sustain consciousness. Plants are reminders of our forgotten selves.

- George Gessert, Green Light, Towards an Art of Evolution, (Leonardo Series)
