New photos of 'revisited' artwork.
Very happy with this little one. I was afraid of using this pink, but
it really turned out to be the best choice. There is so much gorgeous texture that has built up with
all the layers of acrylic and a few pieces of cut paper collaged under all the layers.
Here I used a very intense orange. I love the way it has an odd
sort of quality, like a strange, unfamiliar sound that makes your head turn.
The orange is fairly flat and 'manufactured', like some sort of industrial colour,
but the drawn parts of the artwork are soft and greyish and familiar.
Odd but lovable.
I tagged them on Etsy as 'urban primitive'- The 'primitive' coming from
using my memories to draw from.
The shapes and forms are organic, and relate to
the human body and forms in landscape.
But the colours are definitely derived from 'urban' experiences-
Ok. On a different note, I have to tell you that the benefit of having older children around, is
that you can use them as models, and have them cook too!
Rea made these :)( a Greek version ,I suppose, of 'eggs Benedict', with tomatoes and feta...)
And ,finally, my sweets, what is food and art, and how can children be children ,really, without chocolate?-
