Description

Experimenting with a different approach to the background from my previous ‘leaf’ artworks, ‘Unearthed’ began as a raw abstract statement but soon veered toward a gentler finished artwork. The colours of the leaves emerged from a dusty, dirty ‘ground’ surface just as they do in nature.
It’s always interesting for me to look back at this process too - the colours sometimes almost choose themselves. Yet sometimes the combination of colours are very definately inspired by a combination i may have noticed during the day ... on someones backpack, a dish ... even a piece of fabric.
I enjoy this part of the process, that intuitive voice inside that tells me - ‘it’s finished’.
