The Circle Motif

Mineral Painting Collection available at LA Gallery Tappan Collective

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.  

Available at the LA Gallery Tappan Collective.

MINERAL PAINTINGS

TThe mineral paintings series was inspired, alongside my other recent works, to focus on a primitivist and archetypal perspective – choosing to work alongside the natural raw and rugged beauty of ancient technology, natural materials and mythological shapes.  The intention of using these universal references to light, primitive survival, architecture & art, symbolism, natural shapes, mythological and storytelling from ancient and cultures throughout humanity’s history is intended to employ a Jungian archetypal celebration, hoping to bring to mind simple, beautiful, sensual responses and power which has been passed through generations.
