Genesis of the Standing Stones

Genesis of the Standing Stones

Art at ArcheanWeb: Part of the Standing Stones Series

The stone circles represent a very early form of architectural art. Imagination and creativity were driving our ancestors towards the real-world expression of abstract concepts residing within their psyche. Today the stone circles still engender inspiration with their stark architectural silhouettes imposed against open landscapes.

Genesis of the Standing Stones incorporates sketches from the Avebury site in England. Two stones are cast into a surreal landscape suspended between this world and a world unseen — products of the human mind and its metaphysical wanderings. The work is composed of acrylic on canvas using palette knife techniques.
