The ghost of the past is a bull #throwbackthursday

To join the social media hashtag #throwbackthursday I’m summoning some of The Bulls water-colour series. The Bulls are at least 6 years old. I can recall when I was painting them, the table I was working at, the materials and even the feeling of the brush on the paper while adding water & colors. I also remember I made them all in one evening (and some failed attempts in the bunch, of course). Memories can be so vivid.

Painting Studies: 4 heads and 1 face with ships

Ink as a medium is a liberating experience, at least to me. The more you try to control it, the less it will flow. Ink needs a little bit of guidance, the rest is her decision. After all, ink has been around hundreds and hundreds of years. The usage of ink is embedded in our code already. There’s nothing to fear, she’ll never betray you. Ink has the ability to summon onto the paper all that was forgotten, not only by yes but by those generations that precede us.

Proust In the Belly of a Giant Mite

This is my favorite of all the paintings and drawings I’ve made. The story behind it is simple: years ago, I bought Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, which is considered a master piece. I tried to read it but I found it boring so, instead of finishing the book, I worked on this collage. Anyway, thank you Marcel Proust for the inspiration.

Mixed Technique on Paper

The conflicted mind of color in the twodimensional city.

By the end of November 2011, I finished 2 more watercolors for the on going City Battle series. Let me introduce you to

“Giants Talk”

Watercolor 23" x 30"

and

“Solar Warrior prepares for the Rain”

Watercolor 23" x 30"

(Both of these artworks were already sold).

And more to come, soon.
