Mixed Media on Canvas – Glade – 2014
(Dyes, inks, & liquid gold paint & cling film additions.)
Consideration of plant growth, movement of plant material and natural reflected light seen within a trickle of slowly moving water. Similarly to ‘Precision.’ layers of applied washes of colour were built up in the background before drips were added. The separation by two horizontal lines marks the growth from the beginnings of a stream. A sense of movement is created by circulating green amoebic forms surrounded by painted reds and gold suggest fallen debris blocking the free flow of moving water. Swathes of cling film are adhered over the majority of the surface helping give a 3D feel which is a reminder that our earth being slowly consumed by human waste.
