The Beginning of the Buildings

The strongest and most basic shapes known to man are the triangle, circle and square.

.

I saw a photo of a hillside in greece and I was hooked - It was the pattern, the repetition and the archetype - this mixture of the most fundamental icons and my control freaking ocd - this pattern became my meditation, my practice, my perfect world


The first building I ever drew was 'The Hall of Knowledge' #- where you can see the early formulation of the spirits in the sky pattern.

The first one I ever drew after seeing the photo from Greece was 'The Orange City'# -

where I had created a self contained world of abundance and peace. It soon became a styalised pattern, a prime example being 'The Sacred City'# of which a limited edition print was made that you can see here


The Building Choices

There are many (many) drawings that include the building icon in my art - so the choices I have made represent a shift or a growth in the development of the meaning of them - (and they all relate to the sky) -


The Bridges

The story of Building Bridges incorperates the classic building icons - it is a fundamental work in my career as an artist
