A talented Australian artist has created works inspired by an ancient Egyptian god and goddess and books and art inspired by the ancient Egyptian pantheon.
Key points:A unique and beautiful piece of art inspired from ancient Egyptian deities, books, statues and paintingsA book about the god Hathor was published in 2014 by the Australian MuseumA piece of paper featuring a drawing inspired by Hathor is on sale for the first timeThe piece of artwork, which is titled “Hathor: A Vision” and is on display at the Australian National Portrait Gallery in Canberra, is part of a series of three-dimensional artwork created by Australian artist Chris Toth.
“It’s an opportunity to really explore the relationship between ancient Egyptian mythology and the modern world, and it’s very interesting to me that the connection has never been explored more fully in Australian art,” Mr Toth said.
“I feel it’s a fantastic opportunity to explore that connection between ancient Egypt and our modern world and to see how it relates to our own world.”
This piece is based on a piece of an ancient hieroglyphic tablet that I made for the Australian Bureau of Meteorology in 2010.
“That’s a very important piece of the artwork because it was part of an exhibition of works by Australian artists.”
The original hieroglyphed tablet has been kept for a long time, and so it has a history of being lost and not being returned to its original context.
“The exhibition, titled “Ancient Gods and Goddesses: An Ancient Egyptian View” at the Royal Australian Museum, opens this week, and includes a selection of works that reflect the range of influences that have influenced Mr Toch’s work.”
There’s an enormous amount of influence on me by the Egyptian gods that have inspired my work, and there’s a lot of influence from the Egyptian pantheons that I love,” he said.
Mr Toth says his works reflect his own personal mythology.”
If I want to be a person of great art, it doesn’t have to be about what I think is the best thing,” he told News.
Complex.com in an interview.”
When you think about what you like, or what you believe is the perfect way of doing something, I can take that and build my own personal philosophy on that.
“The work is part a series called “Hattori: A vision”, which was published by the ABC in 2014.
It features works from Mr Tost’s work that have been made for use by museums and galleries around the world, but he says he has had the opportunity to make his own pieces.”
As an artist, you don’t have the luxury of being able to go to museums or galleries to look at a piece and then it’s there,” he explained.”
But that’s what’s going on here.
“What I have is the chance to make my own pieces, and I’ve tried to use the same techniques that I used for the Egyptian hieroglypdict.”
So when I go to see something and I can see something that’s based on something that I created myself, I think that’s the coolest thing.”‘
There’s something magical about the idea that there’s something that has been lost’Mr Toch said that he has always felt a strong connection to the ancient Egyptians.”
You can trace your ancestry back to Egypt, but it’s something more than that, you know,” he laughed.”
To see the way they’ve adapted and developed their art in a way that has helped to define them, and to create something that they can be proud of, and that they’re able to put into the public domain.
“We all know that’s why you have art in the first place, but you also have to take pride in what you’ve created.”
Every artist has to have a vision of what they want to create.
That’s what I’ve always been about and what I have always done.
“For me, I don’t think about anything else, I just want to do my work.
That, and being able, for example, to travel to museums and see what’s out there and see how other people can interpret what I do, it’s just so powerful.”‘
I love the art of ancient Egypt’While the artworks are being sold in Australian museums, Mr Toph said that they are also available for purchase on the internet.
“These are all my own creations,” he added.
“Each of them have been designed, but I’m not interested in making money off of them.
I’m interested in creating them, making them into art and using them to enhance the art world in a really meaningful way.”
