Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Metal and Fiber on Canvas.

I'm besotted with patterns, colour and intrigue. This painting was inspired by my love for Gustav Klimt and his alluring work. I've incorporated, as best I can, his vibrancy and mystique to fit my own style which always includes geometrical shapes, bold colour, splashes of metallics and eye-twisting motifs.

Here you see two ladies engaged in conversation. It looks secretive in nature, judging by their expressions. The lady on the left is slightly hidden behind the patterned columns. You can't see her eyes so there is not reading what she is up to - it's all left to her grin which is brimming with mischief. On the right we have the other damsel absorbing the information. Art is always better left to the perceivers imagination so you decide what 'the secret' is.

I have used acrylic and mixed media in this painting. Some of the material used is foil (silver, gold and blue) and a raised silver alloy. Because of the metallic mediums used, this painting comes alive in natural light. Unfortunately, it cannot be seen in a photograph - only experienced when one sees the painting 'in the flesh'. Different lighting, depending on the time of day, sees the artwork morph into different colour dimensions.

The painting comes unframed and the medium is acrylic and mixed media on Fredrix Canvas Board.
