The ceiling of Lascaux cave has these large scale bulls painted on it, they curve over our heads and engulf us in a world beyond our imaginings, yet it is our world and we did once live here.

The Lascaux caves of France discovered in 1940 revealed a cathedral of prehistoric painting. There is a magical quality to to artwork and the natural colours which sit so well on the calcite stone.

I am fascinated by the mixture of the paints, the rock surface and the geometric signs.

'Black Bull after Lascaux'. Oil on canvas 61cm x 76cm
The latest painting exploring the cave paintings of Lascaux. I'm using all sorts of mark making to somehow record both the art the scratched surface of the rock and the raging process of 18000 years! So refreshing to be working with a fresh pallet of natural colours. Love being surrounded by these images, it's like living inside history!

I was given a reproduction of a small stone ornament from prehistory with the image of a bull. Here I have recreated the bull on canvas adding the reason for his stance!

Lascaux bulls racing across the surface of the underground rock. I was so inspired by my visit to Lascaux that I began recreating these amazing cave paintings on canvas.

The Bull has been a representation of power down through the ages, I love the curve of the horns.

The horses of Lascaux are unique for their large bodies and small heads, they are also very beautiful which is why I loved painting them and the stone on which they sit

Perhaps if man was actually more kind then he may still live in a more diverse world.

I have become fascinated by cave art since living in France, there is something about the abstracted shapes and the colours of both the shapes and the rock surface on which they sit.
