About The Artwork

Oil on Canvas - 97x125x 2cm(38x49 x 1 inch) Stretched, unframed canvas. Can be hung unframed. Painted edge. No hanging hardware included. Ghost is from the artists Yeilding Collection - A series of works inspired by the zen philosophy that the "Softest thing overcomes the hardest" - Lao Tsu. These paintings take forms from water, clouds and smoke. Genevieve Leavold often examines themes of the human condition in her work. Seeing abstraction as a language to express her unique way of seeing the world. Ghost is inspired by the exuberance of childhood. Ghost links to the remnants of this inner freedom we often felt as children, before the world became a serious place. This painting is about the way we existed half in our own imaginations and half in reality, creating worlds within worlds. It is a celebration of the unbounded joy and enthusiasm that comes from letting go of fear. The forms loop and wheel across the canvas, like sea-foam, bubbling up and receding into the darkness. Painted in layers, wet into wet glazes, the colours are pulled into each other giving the painting a harmonious quality. This piece would make a great statement in a living room, bringing gentle energy to the space. Ghost will be shipped with a certificate of Authenticity from the artist's studio.
