Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Plaster and Paper on Wood.

"Sleep's Candle", 2015, acrylic, plaster, and cut-paper collage on fiberboard, 20 x 20 inches (50 x 50 cm).

Uncertain images are built up with paint, plaster and paper, then scraped back and sanded smooth, layer upon layer, constructing a crowded interior landscape in which night and dream wrap the sleeper tightly.

The painting is on high-grade 1/4” medium-density fiberboard, lightly varnished for UV protection, framed in a wood “floater” frame, ready to hang; it is signed and dated both front and back, with title on back.
