We have admired Dennis “Wolfbat” McNett’s work for a long time. His large scale installations and hand painted wood carvings exude a powerful and metaphysical presence we are excited to experience with you.
From Wolfbat: Our lives in this world are steeped in fears and distractions. I have found reprieve and clear guidance from this onslaught through prayer and meditation. In the quietude of meditation I hear answers to my questions. Images fill my mind and replace daily stresses to guide me towards the good of all things.
The works included in “Frequent See” are rooted in these answers and images. The Spirit of the East is dedicated to the change of Spring. The cycle of growth and new birth are lessons from that season. Healer Phoenix and Phoenix Guide are carvings of eagles I’ve seen during healings. The Phoenix removes ego based anchors that inhibit the true self from tuning into higher frequencies. This allows us to see a path based in love rather than fear and doubt. The three skull carvings are inspired by the words from the four directions instructing me to understand compassion, calm and awareness. The collage panels refer to instructions received from our ancestors and spirits. I have woven each message into my personal mythology to create these works of art.
