This painting is part of a series of paintings exploring the power of real or imaginary ancient signs and patterns.
Abstract signs and patterns can be found in places of early mankind like caves and overhanging rocks, schamanic or magic places or places of todays life. Within this series of paintings, I explore the power of signs and patterns and try to capture the emotions that these generate in ourselfes. Some of the paintings can be combined with others to generate a multipanel artwork.
Technique: The paintings are done using acrylic or oil paint as a foundation followed by several glazes. Scratching and scraping are applied to work out the signs and patterns. The top layer is alway an oil paint for maximum colour and duration.
