More Than Skin Deep - 61cm x 76.2cm

  • More Than Skin Deep

    More Than Skin Deep is a return to some free and expressive abstract figurative work that I love to do. This intriguing figure is made from painting many, many layers of thickly textured paint, building up the surface. I then draw the figure in and remove much of the layers that form her body, scratching, washing and sanding in a subtractive style until I am happy with the result. As this process is so dependent on the multiple layers, there are many marks that are formed by happy accidents or that I choose to leave behind for history sake. 
    The canvas has become quite heavy from so many paint layers. 
    This piece is on deep edged canvas, it is UV varnished for protection and comes ready to hang. It ships unframed but please enquire if you would like me to arrange framing for you.
