I am fascinated by the idea of sacred spaces – places that lie beneath what most of us see. These images feel like being in an ancient cave, in secret passageways, in places that take us back to dreams and even, perhaps, to the entrance to the underworld.
Perhaps minerals and acidic water dripped onto these walls to etch the marks and shapes, lights and darks. Maybe charcoal from fire, white from ground calcite, and brown from hematite are the source of this natural color palette. The tones feel uncontrived, pure. And oh, the warm brightness! These images feel like the color of light itself.
