This is our gallery of pictures inspired by the worlds of the shaman.
Picture Poems of Annette Høst
The source of my pictures is the enchantment and mingling of realms
which surrounds us when we are between worlds be it on shamanic
journeys, alone in nature, or with our spirit allies. Letting my vision
land on paper, I blend paper-cutting with drawing and collage. Sometimes
you will recognize motives from our common human spiritual heritage:
figures from ancient rock art, prehistoric magic tools, old Siberian
and Sami shaman-drums step into my pictures and transform from there.
I feel this is paying homage to those who once made the original pictures
and to the timeless power of the spirits inhabiting those figures.
