Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Pencil and Paper on Paper.

Sapiens I, based on images by photographer Seth Casteel, explores the notion that at birth we enter into a system governed by other peoples idea of reality.
This is touched on in ‘Sapiens A Brief History of Humankind’, referred to as the Imagined Order — ‘…every person is born into a pre-existing imagined order, and his or her desires are shaped from birth by its dominant myths…an inter-subjective order, existing in the shared imaginations of thousands and millions of people’, (Yuval Noah Harai, 2011, p.128, p.131).
Inspired by Bridget Davis (fellow TOAF artist), the work is created primarily with ink and water. In contrast to previous series that showed structure and layering this series is spontaneous and organic in nature.
