Red Thing Over Robertson

This all started with my desire to break down the formality of photography and paint with light removing the camera completely from the art making process.

Another smoke drawing ~ the same technique as with Angel Bomb and Tempest .

This technique really frees up my ability to make marks and enlarge them into big prints..

Unfortunately, I had to stop all this in the late 80’s when I developed allergies to all the chemicals and had to abandon photography and this kind of work altogether.

Red Thing Over Robertson is like a premonition, or a sighting of something anomalous travelling over the landscape. As an animist the landscape is prickling with spirits.

It’s certainly ominous and the green cast that runs through the background certainly adds to this.

Once again I have referenced the line work of Albrecht Durer’s Apocalypsis cum Figuris woodblock series.
