What if our thoughts were a house? Common sense would live on the ground floor, to go upstairs would be to withdraw from the world and the cellar would be where we go to dream. Losing our conscious selves as we explore the hidden places and treasures that can’t be found in words.
This painting has been created on a framed wooden cradle board. It is a mixed media piece comprising of Acrylic Paint, Graphite, Oil Pastel, Ink, Coloured Pencil and Collage (including a mix of vintage paper and paper hand made by the artist). The painting is 31cm by 31cm, has been sealed with three layers of satin varnish to protect the work and comes ready to hang.
'Hidden Places' has over 10 layers of paint and collage contained within it. Building it up layer by layer creates depth, texture and history. The lumps and bumps on the surface make it almost tactile and the interplay of shape next to line, collage next to paint and colour next to monocrome creates interest and drama within the piece.
Sold via the RCA (Royal Cambrian Academy Of Art) Open Exhibition, Conwy.
