Bucket and Spade Original
Bucket and spade, this acrylic and ink painting, created in layers which are still visible, like the layers of the years redacting the memory of childhood. A representation of the inner child, the child who never grew up, who lives inside of me, of you.
This piece is 91x61cm on stretched canvas.
Bucket and spade is an exploration of a memory I have of a childhood holiday, though I’m not entirely sure if it’s a true memory, or a memory of a photograph which has long been lost.
The abstraction of the painted surface, the canvas or paper, through the searching investigations of fateful life events, become not only about the subject or object being depicted, but become an object itself, the sides of the canvas, the colour and the drips are equal in significance to the represented “image”.
Pieces are worked and reworked, layered and overlaid, playing with scale, redaction and layering with inks, oils, glazes and varnish all explored to create pieces which are neither traditional nor safe.
As always this original painting comes with a hand written, wax sealed parchment for authenticity.
Please message me if you have any questions about the piece.
This is an acrylic painting on a deep edge stretched canvas, you can have this framed if you desire, but it can be displayed as it is.
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.
