Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Paper on Wood.

"Wren", 2015, acrylic, plaster, and cut-paper collage on plywood, 20 inches tall by 16 inches wide (50 x 40 cm).

Gray acrylic was layered with thin coats of plaster and paper, then sanded, each layer varnished before the next was applied, resulting in a shimmering surface like morning sunlight through foliage. The stems and leaves of bamboo, and the shape of one small bird, are then built up in a similar process. The overall effect combines the sensitivity of traditional Asian ink painting with the tactile surfaces of antique Mediterranean fresco.

The painting is on lightweight 1/4” plywood, 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.
