Ethiopean PAX

Following on from two weeks ago, where I left a piece of work called PAX out for collection, I thought I’d give Free Art Friday another go.

This piece was made from one of those ramps that are used to keep cables tidy and stop people tripping over them. I don’t know what you call these things – perhaps someone will enlighten me. Anyway, it had been knocking around the estate for months, so I thought I’d use it.

I thought it would be nice to paint an icon, and I thought it might be nice to paint it with a black face (much more representative of the area I live in) – so I based this piece on icons from the ethiopean church, which has a really interesting history, if you’re aware of or interested in church history.

We’ll see what reaction if any this one gets. It’ll go out first thing on Friday 31st July 2008.

  1. Interesting to see you’ve carried on with your idea, it’s great to see a bit of bloody-minded perseverance πŸ™‚ Good for you mate πŸ™‚ Ermm “floor trunking” perhaps? Will be interesting to see what happens to Ethiopean PAX

  2. Ah thanks, Linda!

    I think floor-trunking is probably the best description. It’s probably a little heavy for people to just run away with, so it may stay a little bit longer – we’ll see.

    I know what I want to do for the next one already.

  3. Just do it πŸ™‚

  4. […] last one was smashed up, and the previous one had bricks hurled at it. I figure that if they’re going to hurl stuff at it, I might as well […]
