This painting was inspired by my love of maps. As a child I spent hours copying maps of all the continents enjoying the outlines of individual countries.
In this painting the journey is one that goes inward; I was interested in the idea of an interior landscape, mapping experiences of love.
I enjoyed playing with shapes, values and colour in relationship to each other painting layer over layer until I felt the painting was complete. Beautiful hues of pink, lilac, grey and white combine in varying degrees of lightness and opaqueness. I used artist pigments and fine china paper that I dyed and built up in layers.
The canvas has been painted around the edges in a complementary colour. Hooks and cord are attached at the back – the painting is ready for hanging.
The painting comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Please note that the image of the painting in a home interior is for demonstration purposes only and not to scale. It is not as large as the image would suggest. The canvas is unframed as yet.
