voodoo selfportrait versus voodoo mike
2002
acrylic on cardboard
This is for michael buchannon,
bundjalung mike,aboriginal mike
as he used to say" we dont do
the shit we stir the shit". I hope
his spirit makes it to ulhuru.
I can see him now sitting cross
legged on the streets of nimbin,
wearing his black keith richards
style top hat with a feather in it
....voodoo mike powerful master
of nimbin.
{His hat still lives on with his
spirit at the hemp embassy.}

Though having said that a lot
of voodoo lies within my soul
probably the effect of being
brought up in Khartoum. I am
a great believer of magic old
and new.

Painted in Dundas,sydney, aus.
