Graven Images

This recent work is inspired by European Neolithic images from thousands of years ago. While many artists have been interested in so called “primitive” artwork of either contemporary or ancient cultures, these paintings acknowledge the sophistication and skill of these ancient artists. This current work calls into question the idea that art, and indeed the human race, is progressing such that whatever is created today is superior to what went before. It challenges the idea of an Avant Garde that rejects the misapprehensions of the past, brings art boldly into the present day and charts its path into the future.
