A few watercolours for the Creative Cup show.

And a few cave paintings too. We just finished hanging everything. Fourteen paintings, which could fit into a grouping with a possible theme of ‘What’s for dinner?’ Some neolithic humor.

Abstractions of Violence

The link above is to the slideshow of images, my first attempt to make a visual essay. There is an essay from anthropology linked on the right of this page. It has the same title, but the subject is cave painting.

The abstraction of something, is not that thing, this is not a broken femur, although I did the drawing from looking at a broken femur, I abstracted what I was seeing in the lab. But it does suggest violence, of some sort. No matter how realistic the illustration, it is still an abstraction.

For scale, that’s a normal sized coffee cup. I’m still fumbling around with words.

Neolithic Horse

‘Neolithic Horse’, 30″ X 32″, gypsum, watercolors, cotton and clear acrylics on panel, 2001.

I made this piece shortly after major surgery and while I was still enrolled in anthropology at university. It was part of my proof that the original artists of the paleolithic and neolithic didn’t have to cut their fingers off to make a hand print of various finger patterns. That was the idea of some stupid archaeologist that must never have picked up a paint brush or pencil or had any kind of creative thought in their life. The hand prints are mine. I did not chew up stones and ruin my teeth to make pigment, that can be done by bashing it with stones in a bowl, why would people for whom teeth and fingers were vital go chewing stones and chopping off their fingers. They created artwork that has lasted 40,000 years, how long have we managed, how long will digital art be around? I got an A+ for my original thinking.
