The title for this new artwork this piece comes from a song (“The Song for Icarus”) I wrote with my band The Red Masque (which will be appearing on the new album, Mythalogue, due to be released in late 2012 / early 2013..

“…If I were a phoenix bird,
I’d take this flame inside of me.
I would rival the sun;
It would not outshine me.
From a great height I would burn…”

Having a great love animals, fairytales, and world mythology, Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique illustrations. Her artwork strikes a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her artworks have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.
