“SUNKEN, UNSWOLLEN SUNRISES”
MIXED MEDIA ON WOOD
48 x 48 in © 1992 GABRIEL NAVAR

This painting was created in Oakland and while I was a student at California State University, East Bay (Hayward)… I began by creating a ceramic relief owl motif and worked around it…. below the owl, for instance, there is a pool of forms that represent excrement (crap!!!)… it was a sort of statement about societal bullshit and the sort of spiritual healing and wisdom that needs to occur. Behind the foreground, there is a nightmarish scene of foreboding hills and, at the top of the composition, hooks and bodies…..    enjoy
