Billadonna's Wunderkammer # 6: Rock Drawing Edition No matter how tight you pack and label your little boxes, there is still space for magic and THE WORLD STILL DOESN’T MAKE MUCH MORE SENSE The technique of this “Wunderkammer” edition is homage to the oldest public art form- rock drawings. While the material that I am using is the same that has been traditionally used for this art form, (mineral pigment applied mixed with linseed oil- movng forwards to the Renaisance from the Pigment /water mixture)), I use a stencil, generally associated with street art,  to create the image- public visual communication, in their oldest and newest form united by material and technique. For the message- lost in the beauty of the medium. We still don’t know what the meaning of Rock drawing is- communication, scribbles, storytelling. Looking at my own piece and seeing how fast it became mere image, even for me, I think, who cares? It is like contemporary urban art- a voice reaching out,  colour touching your heart, a sensual experience that shortcuts the rational. The message is simple: " I am human, I liked this place, I will return".
