Sir William Wallace

This painting is super bold and bright, in a colourway of both muted and fluro orange, yellow, red and gold. I wanted to see what the materials could do as I layered them on and then removed areas to reveal what was underneath. There are metallics that glint in certain light.
There are a couple of things that inspired this work. As an alternative to a dead stuffed animal head hung on a wall, I wanted to make this stag seem regal, reborn, and beautiful. In Scotland the stag symbolizes nobility, freedom, and purity. The stag in Celtic mythology is a symbol of the forest and an ancient god-like symbol of transformation, magic, and otherworldly activity. When I was in Scotland, a much-missed friend took me to the cave that William Wallace hid in. The cave had incredible acoustics, so we sang our hearts out in William Wallace’s cave. When we came out there was a deer right outside looking at straight at us. My friend didn’t seem surprised, but I was - I was absolutely amazed.

Full disclosure: The artworks, like the artist, are not perfect. I have a Siberian Husky dog called Sasquatch and some loose strands of fur may be forever immortalized in your painting, although I can’t guarantee that either!
