Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Pastel on Canvas.

This piece was part of the original "Like China" Series. The subject matter of most artworks in the series explored colonialism and its dark heritage in different, often classic, settings. Contemporary elements interrupt the subtle references to classic works of art so that a new narrative can emerge.

The painting technique I've used here resembles the Flemish method of layering thin veneers of paint between layers of varnish. I start with pencils, pastels, and varnish. After that, I paint a lighter layer with acrylics and finish with a couple of thicker layers using a combination of mediums, often acrylics and oils, but sometimes gold leaf and inks.
