the art works, Newcastle

Coming up this week is the unexpected opportunity to have some work in the July exhibition – on mixed media art – in the gallery’s Eye to Eye section.

As life has been ultra busy in other respects, it’s fun occasionally to do something at short notice and with little fuss.

An Habitation of Dragons, which incorporates some evocative poetic text from Isaiah, is probably the bluest piece I have ever undertaken. The colour was built up with many washes of acrylic paint plus pure pigment. The support is a piece of specially cast cotton paper which contributes to the luminous effect of the colour.
