About this artwork
The mythical island of Arthurian legend, a place of lush emerald green forests with impressions of flowers in pink and red blurred slightly as if seen through a misty spring rain.
Avalon is a paint collage combined with strips of gardening magazine paper laid over a fluid vibrant green painting.
This work is fitted with D rings and wire for immediate hanging. The pattern continues around all sides, therefore, there is no need to frame. On the back you will find my signature, initials, title and year. It is registered on the NRAA (National Registry for Australian artists).The work comes with details of the registration and a Certificate of Authenticity.
THE FRAGMENTED COLLECTION
For these works I use collage techniques to fragment various paintings that have been removed from any support. This enables me to decide which side of the dry paint to show, the side I saw when painting it or the side that painted itself. I think of this as hiding secrets in plain sight.
Each finished piece is, therefore, a unique combination of both sides of the original paintings resulting in an explosive blend of vibrant pattern. The more they are looked at the more there is to see.
