Sometimes people have said to me that my paintings look ‘biblical’ or they ask is it Religious Art? I wonder where that comment or perception is coming from, however they have sometimes spotted a female figure in the painting which has a scarf covering her head, and I guess the triggers the thought. There are certainly many traditions in art where religion and art have had close and fruitful links. Religious Art drove a lot of the development of western painting particularly over the Renaissance period.
