Vic Atkinson's 'Cartouche'
Vic and I share a common interest in ancient societies. Vic has a developed a love for ancient Egyptian art and when you see this work, you can understand why.
The beauty of colour and design in his work, reveal a richness of artistic expression. Vic takes an artistic form which has been degraded by time and he gives back to us an insight into the beauty of art created by the ancient Egypticans.
Vic, blows away the dust of time and he gives this ancient society the kind of artistic respect they deserve. When you see such a work as this, its not hard to imagine great stone walls, temples, and public places as seen long ago in their fullest glory. Our perspective of these peoples is lifted out of the Sahara sands and given life.
When we see such works we can appreciate Vic's adventurous quest.
