Ram and Unicorn

Size: w 18″ x h 23.5″

Acrylic on paper (? 1992)

This painting is of two small earthenware creatures (A.D. 9-23) excavated in 1978 from a tomb in Shaanxi Province, China. Because of their poses, they are assumed to be guardians to protect the deceased from demons; to me they appear to be mourning the death. Between them I imagine a bright ribbon, the passing show that is life.

An inkjet print of this painting, mounted on birch panel and hand-finished with acrylic, is currently on display to the end of the month at the Art Noise Gallery in Kingston as part of the annual Show of Smalls (https://www.artnoise.ca/store/c22/NANCY_PAUL.html).

This piece is one of several (17) of mine now on exhibit as part of the annual Show of Smalls, Art Noise Kingston Ontario (https://www.artnoise.ca/store/c22/NANCY_PAUL.html) involving 25+ artists. I took this slide as a student at the Ontario College of Art (now OCAD); this is the first time I have reproduced the image for show/sale.
