Traces (2019) SOLD

Mixed media portrait including lace and rusty metal on plastered board. A work inspired by time spent painting alone in an empty house and the absorption of the atmosphere there. It became important to attempt to express feelings around the palimpsestic nature of history, time and memory, our fleeting time alive and the sometimes continuing presence when someone dies. Exhibited at 'Interim', Hereford.

Will be the 3rd part of a triptych exploring these issues.

Date January 2019
