artbear ethnographic influences

an area of work i have always been interested is the subject of ethnographic interpretations of the world through the eyes of various different indigenous cultures around the globe 


images of carvings, designs, masks and fetish objects made by indigenous peoples of Africa, Australia, North America, Papua New Guinea etc as well as early Europeans, along with prehistoric cave and primitive art of the world, fused with modern art therapy, children's artwork and so on - even modern international pictographic signage - the inspirations are vast! 


in my paintings the original symbolic language is diffused and worked into a modern image which renders these objects more as a personal work of art using symbolism than implying any kind of magico-religious significance of the finished piece
