This T-Shirt is a high-resolution reproduction of Mixed Madonna, an original work of ephemeral, magical art by Jane Sherry, co-owner of Satya Center.
Mixed Madonna is a digital painting that depicts the Great Mother -- a collage of jukebox jewels, holy cards, palm, and bits of colored paper.
Jane’s work is included in many private and public collections including the Getty Museum, The Museum of Modern Art Library, The New York Public Library, Yale University, Dartmouth University, The University of California San Diego and more. Read more about the artwork Jane has created for more than 30 years. You can view -- and purchase -- Jane's original artwork in various media including digital prints, limited edition art books, sacred talismans, and more in the Jane Sherry Art Gallery here at Satya Center.
“The ancient traditions of priestess, shaman, scribe and storyteller serve as the foundation and inspiration for my work. For thousands of years, healers, keepers of the temple, clairvoyants and mystics have used mythical narratives woven of text and imagery to connect the sacred and the everyday worlds, and to collect and focus energies for healing, for visions, for fertility, and for community.”
"Using organic materials and colors derived from the vegetable, mineral and animal kingdoms, these custodians of the Divine created art and stories whose beauty triggered mystical states of being in the beholder. I propose to humbly follow in the footsteps of these highly evolved Ancestors, whom I honor for their work over Aeons of time to uplift struggling humanity and accelerate the progress of human spiritual evolution."
"Here, the Madonna is seen in her guise as Great Mother, the healer of all that ails humankind. She clutches her sacred caduceus, wrapped around the holy cross. At the bottom of the page are the names of some of her many manifestations--Astarte, Ishtar and Isis.," Jane explains.
"The crown of the Great Mother depicted in this digitally painted collage was constructed partly from jukebox 'jewels' given to me by an old friend whose family was in the business of making jukeboxes at one time. I scanned the jewels into the computer along with holy cards from my husband's childhood Catholic Missal, a piece of palm like that distributed at a Palm Sunday Mass, and bits of colored paper," Jane recalls.
"I created this piece as a digital 'collage' using PhotoShop and painted the piece using a Wacom stylus and Painter. I had to enlarge the picture to several hundred percent of its normal size, and worked on the image virtually pixel by pixel. Mixed Madonna won an award from the software company which creates the Painter software used by digital artists," says Jane.
Mixed Madonna is being offered in a signed, limited edition of 250 prints on 11" x 8.5" semi gloss photo paper.
"The Mixed Madonna T-Shirts were made from high-resolution digital file of the artwork," Jane continues. "I had them printed in full color on high-quality 100% cotton fabric, so people would enjoy the full flavor of this magical and ephemeral homage to Mother Nature."
