“Primitive Mark” by Susannah Paterson

This is an interpretation of the Pictish Wolf, a petroglyph found carved into many of the ancient standing stones in the Scottish Highlands. I work from a basic outline,  carved out about 1000 years ago, and reimagine it in three dimensional form. The drawing itself remains naive and primitive, conveying the energy of the pictoglyph.

The Picts, who were the original people populating much of Scotland back then, would draw lines to delineate the energy flow, or powerful points on the body (shoulder, haunch). I love these marks and have used them before in many of my paintings. Recently however, I have begun to research these at a deeper level, so this is the first is a series of paintings using the ancient drawings as a foundation for the work.

A note about the colours .. the background behind the wolf is deep blue/black. In some of the photos it looks more black – these are the trickiest colours to photograph due to reflection. I have photographed the painting in different lights to show the black and the blue as best I can. Signed on the front.
