Studying the research of Lorblanchet today on the cave art in the Quercy area. Especially the Pech Merle cave and the "macaroni" signs and traces found there. They are signs with no clear meaning, made directly with fingers in soft clay parts on the cave ceilings and side walls. Again consisting of several layers on top of each other. They could deduce that a part was made by someone with at least a height of 180cm who has taken a risky position to reach, touch and work on the ceiling. They assume that it has been a man, but I am 180 too, so you never know.
Looking at them you are in a very direct physical way "in touch" with the fingers of those people long ago.
I liked Lorblanchets final interpretation: " tracés dynamiques décrivant l'emergence des formes et la naissance du monde organisé"; dynamic traces describing the emergence of forms and the birth of an organised world. He also mentioned the fluid character and apparent joyful, playfulness.
That is how I feel till now when I paint with my hands and fingers in the course of the earth, with all the impressions of the caves I have seen and felt, the things I have found on books and Dvd's in mind, blending everything in the experience of painting, searching for new forms to emerge, waiting for birth.
