It’s hard not to be entranced by Sydney artist Leah Fraser‘s paintings of an shamans, living in an imaginary world inspired by the many healing methods of different cultures. Each of her characters are decorated in ceremonial attire and armed with ritualistic weaponry and wildlife companions. Each piece is powerful yet serene and haunting yet beautiful.
