> DESCRIPTION

Painting is something humans have done for millennia. The media has a lineage not unlike our own, evolving and accumulating like the culture that bears it. Yet like so many aspects of civilization, we take it for granted. For example, people don’t realize that numerous pigments are extremely toxic, not just the fabled ‘lead white’, or that in antiquity a pound of royal purple dye required the crushing of four million mollusks (and that the color purple was worth the trouble - to the Romans).As art spread like a virus, from the skin tattoos and cave walls of prehistory, to temples and palaces, cathedrals and manuscripts, at some point it became desirable, advantageous even, for it to become portable, and transferable. Panels and canvases made art smaller, and pigment bound by egg, oil, or other experimental organic excretions, was invented to be more and more durable
