Mixed Media on Canvas
36" x 36"
This was the last piece I completed before going to AIB for my first residency. Again, the animal as metaphor for my experience, and lots of work on the surface. In this painting, you can also see the layering of collage, using marker drawn images on tissue (the bamboo). Nature is a common backdrop for my cast of characters, as the natural world is a consistent setting where I explore transition and release - two themes that interest me very much. My experience with nature is mediated by my memory and the usual complexities of urban living.
