Shamanic Triumvirate

by Alex Nodopaka

From the artist:

It is a painting that has undergone several transformation stages. Like a real live character, like a chrysalis it metamorphosed into ceramic, etching, photography and bas-relief sculpture. It has been inspired by my search into Ukrainian-Russian Greek-Orthodox Shamanic and spiritual legends and is my interpretation of a mythic divine triumvirate. Each facing the other with the 3rd mirroring the viewer yet all being a single entity.

Alexandre Nodopaka speaks Ukrainian, Russian, French, English & more after some Vodka. He was immaculately conceived in Kiev, Ukraine also after some Vodkahhhs. First breech exhibition 1940 Vladivostok, Russia. First finger paintings Innsbruck, Austria 1946. Studied tongue-in-cheek at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Casablanca, Morocco 1958. USA since 1959. Doodling since. Self-appointed as an art pundit. His interest in literature and the visual arts is exhaustively multi-cultural.
