Over the past two years I have been working on the twelve paintings that form my tribute to the myth of the crystal skulls which I have called “Holy Ice”. Deliberately not doing the 13th as that seemed to dishonour the legend, each painting seemed to be a different experience. I started very cautiously with the first few, often scraping the painting back completely and starting again, and again…..and again, some taking months to resolve.
Often I would sit in front of a painting for what seemed like hours, almost waiting for it to reveal its individual identity, and perhaps it’s whimsical to say that each one seemed to take on their own character as I worked on them, but character's they have certainly become.
