A painting, with texture and layers, this piece reveals more the more you look at it.
This slightly more abstracted painting is 30cm x 30cm on deep edge gallery wrapped canvas. There are many, many layers of paint and ink and varnish, the texture is so luscious, with crackle effects and golds sitting in the layers pearly inks catch the light and the surface can almost look like water. The surface here becomes just as important as the image. Here I have played with imagery and abstract forms in the piece, imagine being swept away with the sea.
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.
