Well he must like us, because David Ezziddine has returned for this round of “Artists on Rotation” and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
David’s contributions for this rotation come from his current project; “The Small Hours”, a series of paintings depicting events occurring at a crossroads of realities, where the physical and spiritual realms mingle and blend.
We are honoured to have this opportunity to showcase the first 2 of this series, both of which are available for purchase in 3 different formats. Private viewings by appointment. To learn more about David Ezziddine visit our Artists on Rotation page.
“Messengers” is the first work in Ezziddine’s “The Small Hours” Series
This woman is an ancient being, a prophet. More than that, she is knowledge personified. Her ancient, weary eyes have seen everything past, present and future. The hummingbirds carry her messages to those who are willing to hear. They are sturdy, fast and agile, and capable of evading the powers of those who aim to obscure the message
In one hand, she carries a fragment of blue cloth covered in golden stars, and a blood-stained jaw bone in the other. The former is a sign that her knowledge is true and infinite. The latter is symbolic of the victory of truth and wisdom over deception and lies
“Bad Medicine” is the second work in Ezziddine’s “The Small Hours” Series
In this scene, we have stumbled upon a witch in the middle of a perverse ceremony, which was not meant for our eyes. He is ancient, withered and rotting. He has captured several hummingbirds sent by the Prophet to spread knowledge to man. The witch has stolen this knowledge and seeks to use that power for his own rotten gain.
