Phi and The Return of the Zambian Prince
Two new paintings: First an exploration of the use of symbols and shapes within an abstract painting with references to other things, adding to the whole with layers and colours, textures and symbols. Following deliberately on from previous paintings, using similar techniques. interestingly (or not) i think these paintings look like they take five minutes: they in fact take a longer time than many other paintings I have done because of the layers of textures and paints. Whilst waiting for things to dry, I used an old framed print of my late aunt Huldah's to make another painting, using similar techniques, with less textures/layers onto a sprayed piece of card. In honour of the Return of the Zambian Prince to South Wales.
