Woven Sky
woven sky, woven space
like a tree I'm firmly rooted in the earth
woven dreams, wove in too
with my arms out to the sky it's woven true
woven me, woven you
we are woven by the things that we've been through
woven sky, woven dreams we have woven all these spaces in between
I am woven with you, we are woven into this woven sky
woven space
I am wove within the fabric of this place
woven eyes, woven face
we are woven within this time and space
woven me, woven you
we are woven by the things that we've been through
woven sky woven dreams
we have woven all these spaces in between
I am woven with you, we are woven in two
I am woven with you, we are woven into this woven sky

Artist Blake Richardson draws upon his visions in the textures of tree bark, in the formations of clouds, and in the natural shapes of rocks and wood carved by the elements in nature.
Blake will often draw a comparison with his art works and the primitive origins of art.
It is well known that in many ancient cave paintings, the natural forms of the cave walls describe features of the images portrayed. Which leads Blake to believe that in some cases the paintings were intended to define a vision rather than to record a story or event.
Mythologies could possibly then have evolved out of the interpretations of those visions.
  Blake follows in the footsteps of ancient cultures who have developed a relationship with the land.

His objective to develop a sensitivity and an understanding for why they chose specific sites to commune with the spirits in nature. Blake looks for evidence of rock art (pictographs and Petroglyphs) and explores these areas with his camera, so he doesn’t disturb these historical sights. Reflecting on the photographs Blake pieces together his visions, then works with oil paints on the surface of the photographs, to bring into focus what he has seen. The minimal approach he uses to reveal his visions leaves a window open for the viewers imagination to enter and interpret for themselves.
Upon completion of each painting. Blake begins a journey to discover the message that it holds for him. He searches through mythologies of the past and attempt to identify his visions, then draws analogies between his own life and the stories that reveal themselves to him along the way
