Miniature painting as a form of storytelling is as relevant today as it was at its inception over a thousand years ago. This piece, inspired by Indian Miniatures, looks at the everyman and the stories that reappear across cultures and centuries. The title is taken from 'The epic of Gilgamesh' (written over 4000 years ago) which includes what some might argue is the 'original' flood story. How this story has been adopted/adapted and reformed over time by different peoples and faiths illustrates its timeless relevance. There is a Russian saying... 'Everything new is a well forgotten old'. By placing individuals from the here and now within the enduring composition of the miniature; the cyclical nature of history is presented.
