Amalgamate exhibition at Westgate Studios
This is the painting that is being exhibited in the 'Amalgamate' exhibition at Westgate Studios, for the May 2010 Artwalk.
It is oil on canvas, and is entitiled 'MOONTREE'.
It is from a series of artworks I made in 2008, which were exhibited at Wakefield Theatre Royal.
The painting depicts several carved stone balls from the neolithic era. These mysterious objects have turned up throughout England and Scotland. Sometimes through archaelogical digs, sometimes through road building!
To this day, no-one knows their purpose. They are described by archaeologists as 'ritual objects'.
