About this artwork
Layers of rich, earthy tones compress to form beautiful , hypnotic patterns separated by tiny shimmers of metallic dots just waiting to be discovered.
Strata is a striking, unusual blend of natural, warm toned fragments cut from a variety of my abstract paintings.
This work has two sets of D rings and wire for your choice of vertical or horizontal hanging (see in situ images). 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.
