Forty Thousand Years 
 14 in x 18 in 
 Oil on Panel 2018

We've been making marks for forty thousand years (that we know of...) This painting is done with cold wax impasto textured to have the appearance of a slab of cave wall. The artist would blow a solution of red ochre at their hand pressed against the stone leaving their indellible mark. How dissimilar are we?
