Cave Art

My series inspired by the research into the geometric signs found in caves in Europe will be featured in my part of the group show at the Roundhouse Community Centre on May 18th as part of the West of Main Art Walk/ Artists In Our Midst opening.

Dots: 3 Red; 1 White, 8″ x 24″ mixed-media on wood panel $225

I like the idea of a friend who says these look like windows. Windows into the mystery of the deep past where we can’t quite see what’s there and who left the traces. Shown at Naam Restaurant Spring 2017
“Hands Up!” First Signs found in caves in Europe include positive and negative hands. Positive hands made by printing the hand on the cave; and negative by spitting pigment around the outside of a hand held on the cave wall. These 8″ x 8″ pieces include hand prints plus other symbols. I like to think I’m channelling the same kind of energy these early artists would have had as they “made their marks.” Photo from Naam Exhibit 8″ x 8″ pieces are $90 each.
John Voth, whose work painting on ripped plywood had a retrospective recently, called the Inner Beauty of Wood Exposed. We had lunch at the Naam and talked art, wood, philosophy. We are both awe struck by the idea of early humans as artists.
