Mixed Media on Canvas – Tension – 2014
(Dyes, luminous paint & pen and ink.)
Similarly to ‘Precision’ & ‘Glade’, ‘Tension’ is a continued result of fascination for creating order out of chaotically applied marks. Light washes of pink, mint are built up with stronger layers of blue-greens and purples. A sense of tension inspired by watching pond skaters is applied with a white permanent pen, taut, radiating out from the middle. The sense of balance is achieved by contrasting angled lines and fluid swathes of painted and dripped marks.
The piece will glow slightly in dark areas or in low light at night.
