painting on rocks (2017-)

paintings on rocks, as well as paintings incorporating rocks, are a common motif in Strudwick’s body of work. Harkening back to the “original” art, cave paintings, the artist’s various works on and including ‘rocks’ speak to notions of “pre-history”, mysticism and magic, indigenity, and discovery.
