2D cave art series

Pre-historic art moves me deeply. Its power, colours, keen observation and reverence are a lasting connection to our predecessors and the animals that enabled a weak creature with a big brain to gradually dominate the world. The wild stampede of life; the stirring spirituality; the statement ‘I am here and I leave my mark’; sex and celebration and death: it is all there on ancient rock and I am shamelessly influenced by it.
