fabric paintings & totems

I have spent years playing with forms that I call ‘totems’ for want of a more appropriate word which has always escaped me. They are instinctive inventions of male, female and animal forms which stem from my facsination for the indiginous artforms of almost anywhere. I suspect this is just a white-man’s subconscious attempt to reconnect with some integral ancestral ju-ju that so called ‘civilisation‘ has unwittingly or ignorantly expunged?
