Most wedge tombs are in Ireland; 505 in number. They also appear in Northern Ireland and Cornwall. Characteristic are the capstone and the cairn of smaller stones. The deeper you go in a wedge tomb, the narrower and lower it becomes. Wedge tombs lie often on mountain slopes, three-quarters from the hill to the top. Just like dolmens, standing stones and stone circles, they date from the Neolithic period.
Silver moon, purple landscape
“Silver moon, purple landscape” is a series of three paintings. The individual works form a unity in subject, color and style, but differ in details: The dolmens depicted are originally in three different countries and the moon is always somewhere else. I’ve painted these images with acrylic paint on wallpaper, 24 x 32 cm. I keep several wallpaper books in my workspace. I like the material to work on, especially with acrylic paint. The paint stays on top of it and with a bit of luck the patterns shine through very nicely. This is also the case with this painting.
