This painting represents man's obsession to believe in & ensure life after death. The mummy on the right is Ramesses II, and on the left Ramesses V, of the Nineteenth & Twentieth Egyptian Dynasties. A guiding matriarchal figure separates the kings. Painted with oils on canvas, with applied gold leaf in the background. I would hope that the viewer perceives the honor & dignity portrayed in the portraits, so elusive to attain in life.

Alan James Weiss

Cape Town, South Africa
I began painting in 1969. Primary career in Design and Architecture, with art now re-visited. My studio is based in the beautiful City of Cape Town, South Africa, and I am married with one daughter. I paint primarily in oils on canvas, & my style is not limited, and although my work is realistic and representative in nature, I do also move to representational work as the mood takes me. Subject matter is likewise not limited, although wildlife has been a focus and the dominant theme throughout my life. As with many artists I would hope that viewers are moved enough to interpret my paintings with a direct connection to their own life experience. In addition to being inspired by a number of the old masters, more contemporary artists that I appreciate include John Singer Sargent, Bo Bartlett, Andrew Wyeth, Odd Nerdrum, Knut-Andre Vikshaland, Vincent Desiderio and Antonio Lopez Garcia. Art Education: B.A. Honours degree from Middlesex University in London - (previously Hornsey College of Art & Design). The HCA was "an iconic British art institution, renowned for its experimental and progressive approach to art and design education”.
