Gary Peterson Art Blog
In the days of antiquity, before subjective thought discerned objective reality, Bacchus (like Dionysus, the god of wine and revelry) personified the hedonistic traits of human kind. A couple millenia hence, the artist known as Titian helped define that aspect of the Golden Age as he saw it in the milieu of the Italian High Renaissance. And now I've given that masterpiece the Peterson treatment, reinterpreting it with some watercolor pencils, Q-tips and a sweat sock to compare with the similarly amorphous nature of my pen and ink drawings but with more tone and volume. I present it here (and in my gallery) for your cogitation.
