"Durrow"
by Rick MacKai

This piece is a large painting, about 3 ft by 4 ft, and is on hardboard. This is somewhat of a replica of the carpet page from the Book of Durrow. This painting is a spectacle up close- as I overlayed the pigments many times, so there is a catchy thickness to the areas and lines, and a purity to the glow of hte pigments because of the thickness and layering. The piece is simple in it's simple colorings. Back then in Ireland, they only had a few colors, which is why they only used a few. The joy and movement created by the flow of the "liquid" through the spinning circles and interweaving "trumpets", is purely a creation of the Celtic art style, which typifies and nearly owns that genre unto itself since LaTene, by our findings thus far.
