Cave

 

The first place man painted on wall was in a cave. It was a part of their culture to have images of animals, and man painted on the rudimentary walls. What would that same approach look like today? Is our cultures need to elevate Thomas Kinkeid’s landscapes part of the same wiring? Do we run to Ikea and buy brightly colored pivtures,  because we need color on our walls or is their something deeper seeded in who we are. The basement is the closest one can find in our contemporary life to the cave of our ancestor. A basement is in our home, but it is often crude, usually unfinished, or at best stuck in the 70’s.  As the closest thing to a domestic cave in our modern world it was the best space to investigate what our primal response would be to art in this situation. Using drawings I had created for the Generations series, because they included a child’s pure mark, I replicated them onto a basement wall to created these images.
