Memories of Childhood

 

Memories of Childhood - AUD 200.00

This painting is a reflection and a collection of memories of my childhood schooldays. It layers paint, torn pieces of paper and metallic ink. Colour has been used to symbolize memory with school colours red, blue and white reflected across this work of art. Musical pieces, school badges and favourite books emerge from behind the paint as the eye is drawn into the layers that are revealed the longer one looks at the painting. The eye is drawn across the page to the yellow flower that emerges in a unique way from the symbolic backdrop. The mood is happy, bright and relatively calm, however the intensity of the hues represents the activity that was present within this period. Black matting with a white A3 frame completes these memories.
