On Sacred Ground Series V
Painting - Oil On Canvas
In the On Sacred Ground Series, Ricardo was inspired by a conversation with a friend, singer and author Bonnie Jo Hunt, in which she was saying Native Americans believe that everything stems from Mother Earth. That all things are connected and spring forth from the ground - a symbiosis between the land and the people. The On Sacred Ground Series uses the background image of the sandstone caves of Arizona. Here Bonnie Jo is singing the Lord's Prayer in sign language. One of her songs is also featured in the latest Ron Fricke & Mark Magidson film called Samsara, which in Sanskrit means "continuous flow" the repeating cycle of birth, life, death, and rebirth - very fitting for the concept of Curvismo.
In a private collection in Albuquerque, NM.
