Rebecca Wheeler's "Lascaux Cave Paintings" Series

September 26, 2020

"This small series of cave paintings are from my fascinations with the Lascaux cave in the south of France. The more I read, the more I wanted to know about these prehistoric paintings. They expressed themselves with paint that told their life stores. Georgia O’Keefe said, “I find that I have painted my life things happening in my life without knowing it.” For these people they knew this was their only way to tell about their stories. The Lascaux Cave had led me to this work. There are many unexplained symbols and I have used their symbols in this art and created my own cave paintings."

The lives and activities of these three artists are intertwined in real life. Denise and Gabriel are artistic and life partners. Rebecca Wheeler is Gabriel’s mother. Denise and Gabriel are expecting a daughter in November. The art of each of these artists is a testimony to the continuum of creativity that has existed since the Lascaux cave drawings in Montignac, France about 20,000 years ago to the present time. The art that will be exhibited presents the narratives of each artist, documenting the development of the modern world, and giving us a glimpse of a utopian, environmentally balanced future.
