FIGURATIVE ABSTRACTION/ 'Visitation' by Eric Whollem/ Mixed media on paper/ CONTEMPORARY GODDESS ART

Eric Whollem
mixed media on paper
Collection of the artist
14" x 11"


The figure on the left hand side of this work is the artist's
interpretation of the Goddess. The kneeling figure on the
right hand side is a supplicant to the Divinity.

My ceramic sculpture from the 1980's and 1990's frequently
treats the Goddess theme. This work is a carryover from my
three dimensional art.

This mixed media work was created through use of layered
parafin resist, worked with a palette knife. . . in conjunction
with gouache paint. Color from Sanford's artist crayons, which
are sticks of hard polymer emulsion, are also utilized in this work,
which was painted on thick, hot press watercolor paper with
neutral pH.
