Stan Padilla is a multi-media artist who’s disciplines include drawing, painting, and silversmithing. Stan is also an educator and social activist who for many years has worked to promote multi-cultural and cross-cultural exchange between people. He is currently an arts coordinator for a Chicano and Native American gallery in Northern California. He maintains an art studio in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in northeastern California.
Stan shared the following about this work of art:
Storytelling, through art, connects us to an 100,000 year old tradition which is basic to the human experience. This painting speaks to us about a primary connection to wisdom realities far greater than ourselves, the descent of that wisdom through ethnic lineage and the universal patterning of culture. It is a part of a series entitled Element Earth.
