Petroglyphs & Pictographs
As an artist, I'm interested in the symbols, images and objects that man makes. My work evolved from my research of Native American petroglyphs and pictographs in the Southwest.
Petroglyphs and pictographs are humanities' oldest evidence of artistic expression. Lacking the knowledge of, or perhaps
ignoring "renaissance space", primitive peoples' figures were
frontal and flat with scale ranging from a few inches to ten feet in
height or length.The difference between petroglyphs and pictographs
lies in their medium. Petroglyphs are carved or pecked into surfaces such as volcanic rock, basalt, or sandstone.
Pictographs were "painted" onto surfaces using pigments made
from an amalgamation of pulverized stone, roots, clay, urine and blood.
