Acrylic and recycled plastic water bottle butterflies on canvas
Available as a Commissioned Work from $5,400.00
A response to Michele Nigrini’s Colour Symphony.
White-on-White. Shadows. Pure. Complete. Perfection.
Is white an equal balance of all colours in the spectrum, or the absence of colour? White, full of meaning and life.
Aesthetic bands of equal width, alternate matt and gloss white, taking inspiration from the American Abstract Minimalist Painter, Agnes Martin. Martin’s hand-drawn graphite lines, a reflection of the black lines in the panels of ‘Colour Symphony’. My painting technique of using my fingers, as much part of the imperfections that characterises Agnes Martin’s work.
The differences in the butterflies are due to the part of the plastic water bottle they come from. Within the work, there is an added dimension that responds to the ‘marks’ in Michele Nigrini’s panels
