"Inanna, Goddess of Heaven, AKA Ishtar, Queen of Heaven" When I first came across this ancient terra cotta plaque, I was struck by the realistic rendering of the female figure, which was way ahead of its 2nd century BCE time. Like many other ancient Assyrian objects of this time, it was smashed and burned and remained buried for all these years, giving it its present patina, which I find very appealing. Traces of the original paint can still be seen.
The artwork itself measures 9"x7" without frame and 12"x15" with frame, and is archivally mounted, matted and framed with Plexiglass and ready to hang.
Based in: Columbia, South Carolina, USA
I was born in Kansas City, Missouri, USA in 1948. From a very early age I began to draw and paint and now at 74 I am still doing it. After serving in the Army I came back to the US and enrolled in the Kansas City Art Institute, where I earned a degree in painting and printmaking. In 1975 I moved to New York City, where I had a painting studio in a loft in the garment district. While In New York, I produced a number of large abstract oil paintings while I studied and did research at the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum. In 1980 I moved to Southern California, where I had studios in Ventura and Ojai. During this time I painted a number of landscapes and narrative paintings. In 1983 I moved to Japan, where I lived for 2 years and studied traditional Japanese painting and scroll making. I had a number of solo exhibitions while living there. In 1985 I returned to Southern California and continued to paint until I moved to South Carolina in 2002. I now maintain a studio here in Columbia, South Carolina, where I paint every day.
