This Simple Path is a large-scale diptych painting, measuring 213 x 609 cm, created with acrylic, oil stick, colored pencil, and paper collage on canvas by Wes Lang in 2015. The vivid composition juxtaposes figurative elements such as birds, flowers, tipis, dream catchers, cloud, lightning, mountain, arrow and sun symbols, and Native American chiefs, with dynamic abstract scrawls and markings, and text statements in Lang’s iconic style. Statements such as: “Be Still – Do Nothing”, “Harmony In All Things”, “(Return To Self)”, “From Here To The Great Unknown”, “(Giving)” refer to various teachings from the Tao Te Ching, the lectures of Ram Dass, and the book The Eagle’s Gift by the Peruvian born anthropologist Carlos Castaneda amongst others.

This Simple Path, 2015, is part of an important private Danish collection and has never been displayed publicly before, as it went directly from the artist’s studio to the collector’s home. We cherish this opportunity to present the painting to the public for the first time.
