 2019- 2020

Paintings on canvas silk and paper using acrylic paint, gouache and wax. 

The first image resulted from a recent artist's residency in India, 'Tasara 2020' combines memories of my childhood with the recent past. The composition is based on a view from the top of a building, looking down through trees and foliage. Through the use of colour and gestural brush marks, it invokes a feeling of warmth, harmony and well- being. Acrylic on canvas, 100cm x 100cm.
