Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Ink, Airbrush, Marker and Paper on Paper.

Strength and weakness: comic book collage on vintage book pages. The portrait is painted with acrylic paint and indian ink.

A collage of vintage book pages bonded together into one sheet (on a firm backing sheet). The layers and varying tones of each wrinkled page convey emotion and offer depth and a 3-dimensional effect that brings this piece to life.

Many of Crowley's pieces feature vintage book pages from the 18 and 1900's. (sourced from those quaint old second hand book stores that are so hard to find). The aged effect and textures give the paintings an energy and feeling of historical depth. Often original hand written messages and underlining of passages are still visible.

"I hope the viewer will feel an emotional connection to each piece, perhaps nostalgia, romance, fear, love, pain, sorrow, anything that offers an escape from the moment" -D.Crowley

shipped same day in an art tube (to avoid substantial shipping costs associated with framed or stretched works). Ready for framing of your choice, if desired. Fast/ tracked delivery.
