I am very moved by the collaboration between Mike and myself.
Gods and Men is a piece that has a history spanning over two years. My initial desire to create the painting. Mac's exquisite ballet whilst hanging Sol for me and Sol's absolute dedication; a wonderful and moving performance art as I watched awestruck these two men bond in an unusual and unique situation. So much moving beauty and so much trust. My overwhelming responsibility to record and create that moving beauty on my paper.
Then there is David's part in filming the whole thing (as part of a documentary that I am hoping will soon be finalised) as I drew my original drawing posted here.
Almost a year later, I started the painting from the drawing and now Mike with his shamanistic ways is involved and this has become an organic event beyond my control.
Gods and Men has taken on a life of its own.
