Artwork description:

This is one of a series of paintings I have produced over the last 2 or 3 decades using a cross motif. The cross is an archetypal graphic shape in addition to its central role in Christian iconography.

'In pre-Christian times it was a pagan religious symbol throughout Europe and western Asia. In ancient times, the effigy of a man hanging on a cross was set up in the fields to protect the crops. The cross was even considered a male symbol of the phallic Tree of Life; thus it often appeared in conjunction with the female-genital circle or oval, to signify the sacred marriage, as in Egyptian amulet Nefer with male cross and female orb, considered as an amulet of blessedness, a charm of sexual harmony'.

Wikipedia

The materials used include acrylic paint, gold metallic paint, oil paint, bitumen, cold wax and chalk paint. Intense heat has been applied to the surface of the paint in order to create unexpected and organic textures. The interaction of bitumen, cold wax and paint can be unpredictable and this process encourages intuitive and experimental responses. The surface has a rich patina and includes, satin, matt and gloss reflections.
