When in the Cave series, 2008-9
A series of oil paintings, inspired by petroglyphs and the ancient cave paintings
It's believed that the shaman would retreat into the darkness of the caves, enter into a trance state, then paint images of their visions, perhaps with some notion of drawing out power from the cave walls themselves; Maybe trying to call upon the spirit of the hunt.
Bloody Cats/ When in the Cave, 2009 /About Iran Spring 2009-Green movement/ oil paint on canvas
it's the question: What is today's human subject for the hunt?
What are their need and desire? What do they fear the most?
What they would call upon if they need magic?
