Art Description

Painting: Gouache, Paper on Paper.

The Forest of the Elephant is a painting in artist-made gouache paint. The painting is on high-quality, thick 850gsm Arches paper. The paint I mix creates unique textures and finishes. The colors are exceptionally bright and vivid.

My artwork is inspired by Celtic history, art and culture. The historical texts of Peter Berresford Ellis and others have inspired these organic images. The compositions are a reflection of my understanding of the natural world. The forms take shape and grow into all sorts of natural-looking objects and landscape features. The guiding working principle of my artwork is to experience Zen and achieve balance. The end result is always a chaotic, yet balanced image that mirrors the visual complexity of the natural world. I find it rewarding that the images seem to share the "DNA" of Celtic art works from so long ago. The line work and colors I've discovered are like jewels wrapped in the fantastic, swirling aesthetic of traditional Celtic art.
