Slow Burn


Cradled birch panel

Acrylic paint, hand-pulled monotypes, collage ephemera, wax pastel and graphite


“Slow Burn” refers to the warm and decidedly spicy palette in this painting. For a small piece, it makes a big statement, with built-up layers of paint and collage that are reminiscent of weather worn buildings or outdoor signage. The precise graphite marks accentuate the bold slashes of colour. Sometimes a painting comes together from a place of abandon and play. This is one of those paintings. It would suit a special place of honour on a wall that needs a burst of colour or in an interesting nook nestled beside favourite artifacts.
