ASCENDANT by A.D. Cook
Ascending out of water and stone to a new world. ASCENDANT, my first figurative painting for 2012, features the beautiful art model Liz Ashley. We did a photo shoot in Las Vegas, NV in 2008 together. This is my third painting featuring her as my muse. Prior artworks include Luxe and Ardor.
ASCENDANT is about the beauty and symmetry of the ascension process from a world of water and stone to the next world. Encoded in the artwork are many alchemical references. Elements and dimensions point to the migration to a higher level – the next evolution of thought and form.
