Earth pigments, acrylic medium and graphite on hardboard panel
Dimensions: 9 x 12 x 0.75 inch (approximately 23 x 30.5 x 2 cm)
" A gentle nod and reference to the group of paintings that came before this series, this painting finds the net-like pattern hugging the right and lower edge of the panel. There is a hint of a lighter and brighter backdrop hovering behind. This was the first painting of the new collection. Looking back now, I can see the color palette which would inform the series of works already coming through." — Marilet
Made from earth pigments and all natural materials, the pieces in this collection are all particles of nature re-formed, connecting the world outside with our worlds indoors. They have a steady presence and are composed of imperfect structures, which despite their irregularities (or perhaps thanks to them) are resilient and flexible, states of being I hope to embody. The imagery used is composed of positive and negative areas which invite the eye to move around, playfully distracting the mind from its preoccupations: a visual meditation of sorts.
