the medicine series
J. Spencer Rowe
"The Medicine Series of paintings came out of my concern for the destruction of the earth, our mother, to offer her agency as a reminder of what she offers all people namely, sustenance and healing. The paintings are simply reminders of our relationship to nature, our mother the earth and ourselves."
Observing these vital medicines through a microscope, how can anyone not be inspired by the beauty of nature at the molecular level. Each 4' x 6' painting is Spencer's skillfully created, abstract interpretation of nature's own canvas. With their abundance of colour and layer upon layer of paint adding comlex texture to an otherwise flat canvas, it is difficult not to be drawn to each one of these unique works of art.
