The cross theme is morphing in ways I never suspected. Haven’t done much research but just a little revealed a few symbols that have grown out of this universal symbol: crossroads, tree of life, ladder to heaven and much more. I never imagined I would find it so rich.
These were created on top of older collages. The difference in the making this time is I chose these older images with the idea of wanting to create cross imagery on top of them. I saw a possibility, had an idea, of what I wanted to do. This is different from my usual art practice: approach the page and work without thinking but it still incorporates my spontaneous style, just adds the elements of awareness and intention.
When I stepped back, I saw the possibility of going further with these by creating a painting, totally in oil or acrylic, based on these new images. Exciting!
