In the early morning fog, a mystical maiden arises from the elder trees and presents herself. Her gnarly, twisted branches magically transform into free-flowing forms, creating a gestural arabesque that illuminates the spirit of the natural world. Water, earth, sky and fire are each represented in the branches that emanate from the guardian-like being’s crown. In the elder tree spirit, the flowers are abundant on the branches above while the root system runs deep, spreading outwardly to encompass the world below.
The gatekeeper, with a feminine spiritual essence and mystique, wears a magical headpiece, boasting a fire opal surrounded by a series of golden rings. Illuminating like a radiant flame, the center stone symbolizes clairaudience: the ability to hear things from beyond. The circles that encompass the gem symbolize the infinite cycle of life, where there is no beginning and no end. On the chest plate of the mystical gatekeeper is a keyhole: a magical gateway to the imagination. When one comes in contact with the elder spirit, she conjures the powers of the elements to offer abundant creativity: the ability to transform the ordinary to the extraordinary.

In Cyr’s world of the fantastic, the viewer is shown a portal into a highly imaginative, mystical realm where supernatural beings, winged guardians and underworld deities coalesce in magical, multilayered environments and dreamscapes. Within the artist’s personal narration, visual tales of quests to worlds unknown evoke transcendental experiences for those who are willing to enter into the pictorial drama. Through the multilayered narrative, we journey to a world beyond, where the awakened subconscious leaves the viewer spellbound and wanting more.
