Emerging artist incorporates ancient wood carving technique that was shown to him in Amazonian Plant Teacher ritual bringing visions from a magical realm into material reality
The work of Chris Isner stops you. Stops you from everything else and makes you feel it, the same way a breathtaking landscape does. Understanding what you are witnessing is not something to be taken lightly.
Chris went into the Mariri, the sacred healing dimension that you can travel to using the most powerful psychedelic and entheogens in the world — Ayahuasca — and came back with a vision on how to manipulate wood in a completely magical way. When you see his work, your brain cannot understand how these visions came to life in wood, you rational self immediately wonders if it’s not plastic or ceramic.
Isner visions are the embodiment of Ayahuasca. Just like an intergalactic explorer that came back with a sample meteor from other worlds, Chris brings into our reality the magical visions of Madre Ayahuasca — so you can touch them, feel them, own them.
