THE ANGEL GAIA is the painting that most clearly expresses that which I long to express through my art. It is that love and cherishing that I have for life on Earth, the Biosphere. The Angel Gaia is a prayer for protection of nature through awakening human consciousness.
In ancient Greek mythology, Gaia (from the Greek word meaning Earth) was the Goddess of the Earth, the Great Mother of all that is. Taking its name from this origin, The Gaia Principle or Gaia Hypothesis, developed in the 1970’s by scientists James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis, describes the interconnections of the living world and the geophysical world as a complex, self-regulating “thin skin of Life” known as the Biosphere – our home.
