VIEW IN MY ROOM
Painting: Acrylic on Paper.
This is an abstract landscape in the tradition of Japanese Sumi-e, using a black/grey limited palette with a highlight in red.
The inspiration is from these words:
Yet rising from the tomb, from the black oblivion stretching out my hand, my hand flung like a drowned man's hand on a rock, I touched her flank and knew I was carried by the current in death over to the new world, and was climbing out on the shore, risen, not to the old world, the old, changeless I, the old life, wakened not to the old knowledge but to a new earth, a new I, a new knowledge, a new world of time. D.H. Lawrence, New Heaven and Earth, 1917.
The paper is 450 gsm paper from St Cuthbert's mill in the UK.
