As part of this years Folk Tale week on Instagram, I was inspired to use some of their prompts to express the feelings I was having during the odd times we have been going through and especially the odd and vivid underwater almost trapped feeling dreams I have been having.
This unique, dark painting is 14.5cm x 21cm painted on wood panel, the surface is smooth, I have worked here are many, many layers of paint and ink and varnish, the texture is tactile, with crackle effects and smooth finishes, you want to run your hands and your eyes over it!
In the layers pearly inks catch the light and the surface can almost look like water.
The piece was created as part of the Den Lille Harfrue Collection – the little mermaid. Created in lockdown to express my feelings about the restrictions, being unable to have social contact and also experiencing incredibly vivid and at some times quite scary dreams, a lot based underwater.
Not only did I draw on my own vivid dreams as inspiration for this piece, and this whole collection, I also looked at one of my favourite Fairy Tales as a Child- The Little Mermaid, by Hans Christian
My work is ephemeral feminine expressionism, I am a painter, I work with all paints and mark making mediums, inks to oils. Currently exploring themes of Folklore and mythology, and inner beings.
