Live To Tell
About this artwork
Please note that Live to Tell is currently a finalist in the Wyndham Art Prize 2021. It remains available but cannot be released until the end of the exhibition in June.
This paint textile references wabi-sabi, the belief in the beauty of imperfection, impermanence, and the incomplete. Open sections combine with the unravelled to throw shadows along the wall providing a contrast to the densely woven. Highly unusual and made entirely from paint this work provides a fascinating take on contemporary painting.
My art practice revolves around the desire to free the paint from the canvas, providing it with a life of its own.
The work is fitted with D rings and wire for immediate hanging. On the back is my signature, initials, title and, year.
