About "African Spirit Quest"

"African Spirit Quest shows a portrait of a beautiful Samburu woman from Kenya, who seems to embody the spiritual quality of the indigenous people of the African continent because she speaks to the viewers soul.

This is a mixed media painting, using a Fractal Vision as the background with a portrait in the foreground. The colourful beads of her necklace sparkle and create wonderful movement around her beautiful face which compliments the swirls of the Fractal background.

This work has won many top international awards, including FIRST PLACE in "Art Exposure" and "Girl Power"; SECOND PLACE in "World Culture" and 'New Age Spiritual Art" and THIRD PLACE in "Mixed Media Compositions".

It has been featured on the homepage of the following sites: "Museum Quality Images", "Beauty in Art," "Culture and Civilization," "Magical Art". "Global Art Gallery," "Positive Energy," "Arts Fantastic World," "Beauty and Purity of Woman," "Out of the Ordinary," "Figurative Abstracts" "Myth, Magic and Spirituality" and "Images That Excite You."

This original work measures 59.4 cm wide and 84.1 cm high. It is gallery-wrapped i.e. painted on all sides so it doesn't have to be framed unless desired. For safe international shipment, it can be removed from its stretchers and rolled in a sturdy cardboard tube.

This artwork would look stunning in any room of the house, office or restaurant.

About Dr. Michael

Dr. Michael Durst

According to the Ico Gallery in New York, "Dr. Michael Durst is one of the most exciting South African artists. As a psychologist, Dr. Durst's paintings create not only beauty for the beholder, but also a state of relaxation and healing. His work combines realism with impressionism, evoking an emotional link to the heart thus the name: Heartscapes.

Dr. Durst loves to paint the beauty of Cape Town--especially the Waterfront, Table Mountain, ocean views, spring flowers, the vineyards and, of course, the people of the Cape. According to Dr. Durst, "I like to re-create a "magical moment" that I have experienced. As I do so, I strive to achieve a delicate balance between the realism of the scene and the even greater intensity created by light, texture and colour. At a certain juncture, an integration occurs. The captured moment in time is taken in without judgment by the brain, allowing the vibrational intensity to adjust the frequency of the hearts rhythms. As the integrated process continues, the viewer becomes awash with positive emotions, a sense of peace, and greater coherence all of which contribute to physical, mental and spiritual healing."
