Additional Information

 

Ancient Origins has its origins in fossils. A recent trip to India and a visit to the Kolkata Museum inspired this piece. The structures and textures of huge fossilized remains of long gone Ordovician marine creatures on display, called Nautiloids, fascinated and begged me to create an abstract from my impression.

Formed on an amateur of German Hahnemuhle 300gsm cold press, new cotton mould-made paper, overlaid with a variety of Asian handmade papers some as low as 8gsm and containing various plant fibre organic inclusions.  I allowed the work to have torn edges to divulge the beautiful nature of the papers and to reveal the organic textures and natural colours. The background is Arches 300gsm hot press.  The materials are extremely archival.
Beautifully framed in raw Tasmanian Oak hardwood finished with beeswax and acrylic glazing.  There is no mount so it has a more contemporary open background look that truly vaunts the dimensional, sculptured subject.  It would perfectly suit an open plan contemporary interior setting with timber floors and leavis viewers to ponder their own interpretation of its meaning.  Like all my sculptured art, it is interactive with changes of light through the day but benefits from having a steady point source of light from overhead.
