This artwork is from the 2nd batch of "Early Works from Wallpapers". I traced a section from a Wallpaper and mirrored the image to make a pair. These works were intended to push me in the area of colour after years of concentrating on the figurative drawn line. Painted on handmade paper, actual image size 48cm x 49cm.
Mixed Media on paper
55cm x 76cm
Artwork is on hand made paper, over all sizes are given as the average on the hand made paper size; painted image size is approx 48cm X 49cm. The image is a result of working too much in line alone. This pair is supposed to be a celebration of colour and pattern, to push to boundaries, it is about joy. The result looks like there is some ethnic play which I'm happy about, its my past. Thoughts are always present when you paint, they can so often come from behind.
