Mounting and, if desired, framing, is available at buyer's discretion at cost. Discussions should be conducted with the artist, through Saatchi Art, should this be the case.

The Work

Since the advent of photography artists have sought to depict images which cannot be captured by photographic means. Among these are natural phenomena where the light effects defeat even the most sophisticated of cameras.

But the artist takes these to extend them to enhance dramatic effect.

The composition of this work is inspired by the natural landscapes of South Africa, where the artist lived for a number of years.

Due to the absence of city lights, nighttime has a quality which it is not possible to experience in more populated areas. In addition, in South Africa there is an inexplicable connection to the deep past of human existence long before the settling of people as sedentary.

The idea of the work is to suggest to the viewer that ancient past back through the 250,000 years or so that our species, Homo Sapiens, has existed.

In the back of our minds we are all haunted by a sense of our deep past.
