Ancient Symbol, Acrylic on canvas 62 x 54 1995
“That’s a symbol that summons the spirit world.”–G
In shining gold, an object is drawn with sharp lines and a pyramid appears while darkness falls on both sides of it. The pyramid is crossed with symbols and letters. This object also appears as a star depending on the way you look at it. What this ancient symbol may mean remains mysterious, but its power is clear: it is the painter’s plunge into a primordial image, his exploration into a mine in which lies an artifact of the mind lost from history.
