ART MAKES US WHOLE



June 20th - Parris Ja Young

Kokopelli painting


KOKOPELLI
Pronunciation: koh-koh-pell-ee

Image from ancient Anasazi Indian mythology. Prominent in Hopi legends. Represents a mischievous trickster or the spirit of music (Minstrel). Kokopelli is considered a symbol of fertility. Brings well-being, success in hunting, planting and growing crops, and human conception.*




Artist Parris Ja Young
describes his Kokopelli painting as a "depiction of the fertility rascal" containing "the heart, a shorthand circulatory system, a meandering stream, a sparkle of fire and a lot of grass. I think of "The Piper at the Edge of Dawn" (
from "Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Grahame) when I think of Kokopelli. Read WitW when you have a little time. It's a classic kid's book.
The painting is sold but still in my possession."

About Parris Ja Young
Parris is a Western Montana artist, muscian, poet, and philosopher, and occasional Wild West player for a local community festival. He says of his painting, "I thought I was going to be Kokopelli back in my wanderin' days with backpack and flute."
What he says about himself during the Age of Covid:
Carlos Castenada mentions four phases of life: youth, apprenticeship, power, and old age. My power is but a trickle, and I am tasting old age. If you look at life with the mind, it's a comedy. If you look at life with the heart, it's a tragedy. It's best to look at life with BOTH eyes.

And the last ingredient: Victor Charlo said, "No contribution is too small."
