Acrylic, spray paint and hand embroidery on printmaking paper. This work comes unframed.
This artwork was inspired by a trip to Palm Springs, California. I loved rising to watch the sun rise in the desert landscape and watch how the mountains surrounding Palm Springs became a wave of pastel colours.
My Urban Garden and Landscape artworks are created using photos of gardens or landscapes as inspiration. I aim to capture and recreate the energy and vibrancy of these environments by using the following processes:
- Layer 1: Acrylic paint is used in an intuitive manner to communicate the natural vibrancy of the natural environment in these images. - Layer 2: Spray Paint is used to spray a geometric stencil grid over this natural environment stamping out the planned organised way we have developed our natural environments. - Layer 3: Hand embroidery is used to connect the natural and urban layers building connections through patterns that highlights the flaws and features of these environments.
