Etching Through Thick Glue With a Stick:
A MODERN PICTOGRAPHIC TECHNIQUE
This painting was created by a technique that I adapted from
a Japanese printmaking technique that involved the manufacture
of rubbings from printing plates made from glue on paper.
Although this is a completed painting, a rubbing could be made
from the deeply grooved impasto surface.
One will note that this technique is an excellent way of evoking
the styles commonly seen in archaic rock art and petroglyphs.
THE SEEDS OF TRIMURTI
Trimurti is a Sanskrit term that refers to the 'three forms' of
God. Most Hindus accept a major trinity of Gods: Brahma,
Vishnu and Shiva.
