Math a Mabinogion Tale
As I am heading back to Wales to live in early 2021, I am limited on projects that I can start. So I decided to begin the next big series of in-depth sculptural paintings of the Mabinogion.
The first one I am starting with is Math, this one just happens to be a favourite of mine. It will comprise of 10 oil and ink paintings presented with metal frames suspended above a carved wooden plinth.
I have started the first of the 10 drawings and estimate it will take me about 3 months to complete. So all in all this project will take approximately 3 years to complete all 11 stories.
I plan to enter this piece in the 2021 Eisteddfodd in Wales.
Come and visit Hell before it leaves NZ. Enjoy a trip to the most unusual place to go!
Below is the first part of Dante's journey into the Hell. I am still waiting to bring in the photographer to share this magnificent piece with you all. Will probably be in Jan just before I start making plans to bring all the artwork back to Wales to sell.
The Covid Dragons
This painting is dedicated to the Doctors and Nurses on the front line fighting the global epidemic. I will have to wait for a professional photographer to get a great copy of it and then I will make it available as a free download for anyone wanting a copy. It is NOT for resale, it is not for profit.
The painting represents the Welsh Nurses and Doctors (dragons) protecting the Hive (the community) against Covid (represented as an invasive weed) The Hive is held up by a spine representing the backbone of society and how fragile it is at its base.
