This series is inspired by the research into the geometric signs found in caves in Europe was featured in the West of Main Art Walk/ Artists In Our Midst.
Many of the pieces plus new work will be at 2909 West Broadway for June and July at the community office of MLA David Eby. The office is usually open 9:30-4:30 Monday to Friday.
The colour palette I’ve used often including lime green, turquoise and bright pink is inspired by the photographic technique used in enhancing photos of cave art. The approach is called D-Stretch and was used first in the U.S. http://www.dstretch.com/
Here’s an excerpt from the website:
Decorrelation stretch, an image enhancement technique …can be usefully applied to rock art. I(it has the) ability to bring out elements nearly invisible to the eye and to improve visualization of difficult sites.
First time out of the studio is:
Deep Within. I feel it can be deep within a cave–with lights and photogrphic equipment turned on–or deep within to my interior space. What does it say to you?
Organic Forms or subtitled: What did the kidney say to the heart?
