Ascension I-VII is a continuous sequence of paintings and is therefore best viewed and sold as a collective unit. The stated price includes all seven paintings sold together. This series of paintings has an underlying timeless, spiritual and universal appeal, and is also influenced from my sense of what Ireland would have felt like during pagan-celtic times ( ca.500B.C-500A.D) The use of gold is majestic and at the same time, grounding, due to it's underlining earth tone, thus echoing a sense of the divine in nature. The use of line in the series of work not just represents the instinctive need of people to make their mark, but also helps the viewer to ascend into a deeper plane within themselves. The line is positioned on the top of the first painting and it gradually forms a circle, becoming engulfed in gold, before descending in the final painting.
