90 x 90 cm, Acrylic, graphite, pastel
95 x 95 cm framed in white tray frame.
Water signifies positive Fung Shui, a balance in life, meditation and the inspiration for this new series of work. This painting has been created by considering the spatial freedom between forms beginning with spontaneous mark making in gold pastel upon which are built layers of paint (some screen printed, glazed and overlapped) and charcoal graphite. The process is a journey without agenda but purely focussing on exploration and discovery.
