Inspired by Chauvet Cave
This collection of paintings began as an exploration of animal anatomy. I have been impressed with Paleolithic cave paintings for some time and felt this would be a good place to begin with my work. I think that the movie "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" by Werner Herzog re-awakened some of this as well. The cave works are imbued with grace and mystery; I wanted mine to share some of these qualities.
