Peggy Kane’s – Jaguar Shaman

In regards to the new version 6.0 of my film Outskirts of Infinity; I’ve been thinking about how an art piece can be used and an ‘element’ in a film. Just like elements found in nature that can be combined together to create new compounds, as in chemistry; I used in the film, Peggy Kane’s Jaguar Shaman painting (photo) Ironically, both Sundog (as himself in the film) and I, both competed in bidding for it at the fundraiser for Patti Lopez a few years ago. Later Sundog had the painting displayed it in his cabin in Ruby, Arizona where ‘Outskirts’ was filmed. I was attracted to the painting all along; and now in retrospect, I’m glad Sundog won the auction.

I saw this painting as an ‘element’ making up the structure in my film. And now in version 6.0 of “The Outskirts of Infinity” this artwork helps link Sundog to an earlier time in Ruby’s history through an interdimensional gateway – provided by the Jaguar and the Shaman.
Note: “The Outskirts of Infinity” will be screened at the 2009 Arivaca Independent Filmmakers Exhibition on March 7th in Arivaca, Arizona
