About The Artwork

Inspired by the Constellation of Orion, Betelgeuse represents the "right shoulder". Betelgeuse is what's known as a semi-regular variable star. It naturally brightens and darkens over a period of roughly 400 days. But what happened 18 months ago was out of the ordinary. The loss of brightness was far greater than anything previously recorded. I hope you you will experience the movement of light in the work as you move the moon gold is visible then it is not. I seems to have its own movement. I work with natural indigo vats and pigments a colour that has a deep history and so many shades. The folding and unfolding and many dips is a process that is always changing. Betelgeuse is framed in a clear acrylic custom frame with museum mount.

Exhibiting international and national award winning artist who practice also includes commission for commercial as well as private collectors. Creative artist making meaningful inspiriting poetic art to cherish.Indigo because it colours everything, all emotion, our fragile planet, our universe. Madder is the colour of open flesh, wounds and healing, love and heartbreak" Indigo, 6000 years of historical importance that continues to inspires me. I make my own non-toxic fermentation indigo vats using century old recipe, plant dyes and pigments from the Earth on washi, wool, silk, this contrasted with industrial materials- cast iron, steel, concrete, engages me in a dialogue that creates a deeper connectedness to being.The tension of light, ephemeral and heavy dark industry produces a emotional experience. I find the dust and grime ingrained surfaces, when the edges worn with layers of time, muted colours greyed into man made materials. The experience of being in a rivers current and looking up through the heavy deep grey black blue sky to a ray light reflecting back.
