This abstracted series is based on the idea of ancient fossil finds. Just like prehistoric dinosaurs caught in stone, these paintings are three-dimensional relief structures. Created from ground marble as a basis, shapes are formed on a canvas, making the painting look as if creatures and objects dive in and out of a lake.
By adding eggshells, pebbles and other natural products to the painting, the “fossils” come alive. The final touches are done in acrylics, gold leaf, inks and spray paint, just before the entire structure is sealed with a thick layer of varnish.
