"The stars in the sky are a million years away
but I see in your eyes that they're right here today
we let light be disguised if we don't realize
we are one, we are one

With your bothers the mountains
and my sisters the seas
here with all living creatures
in relation to these
we are one, we are one

Grandfather Sun
Grandmother Moon
and Mother Earth
the Universe

This fabric of our existence has been torn at the seems
by the wear and the tear of our modern human beings
we can all change the tide if we choose to decide
we are one, we are one

We can take these predictions
of what the future will bring
we can all use our voices
work together and sing
we are one, we are one

We are all one"-Blake Richardson

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
