The Circle Motif

I just finished a new series of mineral paintings exploring the symbolism of the circle motif.

The circle is one of the symbols that dates back to the pre-history of human culture.  As a geometric form it occurs in the earliest paintings on cave walls.  It has a widespread and universal interpretive phenomenology; often metaphor for emergence, life, egalitarian cosmologies, the cyclical timescale of nature, infinity and seasons.  The symbolism of sitting in a circle, has extensive radiation among primitive and modern societies alike.
