The story of our connection
to the distant past.
Storied Past was a series of oil paintings that combined my interest and growth as a realist painter and my curiosities with the pre-historical past. It was an attempt to contemporize and reanalyze our distant ancestors and what connections we still hold in common with them today. It obvious our worlds are completely different from our ancestors. Most of us no longer must worry about food, water, and shelter like our ancestors had to. But for 200,000 years homo sapiens have had the same evolved brain. Even though we are separated by thousands of years of time, we still all share in a human experience and are all providing in the continuum they began long ago.
