Oil & Wax on Kromkote Paper
38 x 24
This conceptual piece represents the blossoming of wisdom which comes with age. The images the show the unfolding of a flower superimposed with a woman's head which also represents consciousness. It is lush and verdant, surrounded by water which symbolizes the subconcious and our emotions. The little figure on the bottom left represents the witness, the observer watching the unfolding taking place.
This series of works which were developed intuitively, are very much about perception because of the many layers of images. The nature of this work lends itself to the viewer bringing to the work their own perceptions of what they see and what it means to them. My descriptions are only my version of what I see. Enjoy the process and let your imagination have some fun.
NOTE: These oil & wax paintings on paper are fragile and need to be kept flat. It is best to keep them framed or at least supported on or between foam core or matboard. These do very well as long as they are handled properly.
