With this piece “Ancient Fortitude” the primary visual focus is the two towers. They represent absolute dominance over the land and give a sense of scale and balance to the overall composition. Perhaps long ago, this “Star Wars” inspired planet was ruled by an alien race with extraordinary powers to build structures beyond one’s capabilities. Now, the towers lie undisturbed, soundless and remind the people that there once was an even greater power.

Each moon or planet represents a different part of time, life and energy. They work together to help maintain this dynamic and powerful world. The villages were created by an alien race who has ruled these lands as great warriors for centuries. The flags around the villages are mainly used as markers for territory, deadly acid pools and molten quicksand. The skeleton monster in the middle tells us, it may have died thousands of years ago, or it was hunted by the creatures who now rule these lands. This vast desolate landscape and all that reside in it, give life and meaning to a world of the unknown.

Chris McCall Biography

Chris McCall was born July 1st 1980 and has lived in the Cincinnati/Dayton Ohio area for most of his life. He can remember as a kid growing up and always using his creative skills to create art in some form or manner. In high school, he took a couple of art classes; but still, he had no idea what he wanted to peruse after he graduated. After high school, worked in the film industry for 10 years; but lost interest and started to find other forms of art to inspire him.

2014 proved to be the year of great change for him, as he explored the arts once more. It’s been four years now since he transitioned from video to the arts/painting and he doesn’t regret it for one second.

Chris has shown his work in many art shows, festivals and events in Ohio, Kentucky and Chicago. This year, he continues to pursue even greater opportunities in California and Colorado. Chris finds inspiration every day through his friends, art festivals and the world around him. Chris creates and brings his artwork to life through his art studio in Middletown, Ohio.
