    Mystery and symbolism. Imagine languages broken down based on levels of consciousness rather than merely specific to a people originating in a specific geographic location.

    In the ancient times, it was the hidden treasure by an elite, those bent on wielding cosmic secrets. For the initiate and believer, apprehending the world calibrated thus created a particular style of living Art.

    The pyramids splitting the Red Sea. . . or the Red Sea swallowing the pyramids. Could be languaged many different ways.

    Very fine and expressive painting, GX. Feels a little like a Rosetta Stone. Plus it looks very cool as an abstract. I love the chops you got worked into the surface.

    thanks dear friends for your great support for my abstracts and kind comments.. this one was a bit of a struggle.. kinda went flat for a week or so and then tried this and was having a hard time to figure out what and where it was going until almost the end and then everything just popped into place...

    I could not find the focus.. what was the actor and what was the stage, so (on a new layer) i picked a great red and just started "painting" over and carving out what was below, leaving some stuff peeking out . sometimes you have to risk a bit and give up and the preciousness of what you have done to push the painting to where it needs to go...
