Arcana Mundi is a stunningly reproduced collection of works on paper by a celebrated artist living in upstate New York. Sexually charged images of dream like "power animals" reflecting human states absorb the viewer into participation in a world of magical hazard and psychic exploration. Jan Harrison writes about her work that it "is concerned with the paradox of the power of nature With regard to our own sense of order and justice. Through communion with animal nature, I link instinct and intellect, showing the duality of knowledge and innocence as two sides of the psyche of the world".
