Bridge Over Troubled Waters - AUD 200.00
This work contrasts media application, colour application and the tranquil smooth times of life against the more turbulent, difficult pathways we may experience. It uses a mixture of pencil, charcoal, ink and candle wax. The subtlety of smooth application with watered ink and graphite pencil creates an image of gently flowing water with an almost sunlit surface. The darker areas, which combine ink, candle wax, charcoal and pencil showcase the more complex and rougher periods or journey. The linkages of the penciled areas across draw the eye into a pathway that may not have been evident on first glance. This creates visual interest as it appears that the painting is coming at you and you are drawn into it. The simple silver metallic frame complements this A3 work.
