The Egypt Series 2006-2011

The paintings in this series draw inspiration from Egyptian artifacts, mythology, wall paintings, etc., or borrow certain ancient Egyptian artistic conventions that I think will complement my own narrative style. The level of obvious Egyptian art influence varies from piece to piece but all are indebted in some way, even if I've just borrowed that distinctive frontal eye in a profile view. I love the fact that ancient Egyptian artists used animal imagery to convey complex ideas about the Big Issues - life, death and an assumed afterlife.
