Sacred Sites

A Collection of 21 Newly Available Watercolours

Travis Shilling’s celebrated Sacred Sites watercolour series expands continually outward as a voice for the past after unearthing buried histories.

The newest watercolours in Sacred Sites were born through community and the act of storytelling, and the water markings serve as portals into these experiences and visions from our past. Embracing the immediacy and permanence of water, the works of the series explore our culture, its spirits and ghosts, and us.
