Work on paper, Canson 290gsm, 61 x 86cms, acrylic, charcoal, unframed with 3.5cm surround border, comes with plastic tabs for pinning to walls

Description

This work is part of a series called 'Uncontained Vessels' where I adopted the simple shape of a vessel as a metaphor for the human form. This work explores the experience of form (body, thoughts and emotions) and formlessness (silence, stillness and spaciousness) experienced during my morning meditations and contemplations.

One of the great influences on my work is the book 'Tantra Song' by Franck Andre Jamme, who first exhibited a small selection of Indian sacred works on paper in Paris in 1994. These works were originally produced by Tantric families from Rajasthan for meditation and visualisation where they are left unframed and simply pinned to the walls, usually in a special or "sacred" place in the house. Eventually the piece is discarded or replaced with a new artwork. There is a lovely quality of non-attachment and impermanence to this story which resonates with me.

With this in mind I have chosen to leave the artwork unframed. I also feel it helps the artwork be more affordable to purchase. The work is on Canson 290 gsm, weighty, mould resistant, professional art paper. It comes with clear plastic tabs attached in the corners to pin the artwork (like a poster) to plasterboard walls. If you do decide to frame it the tabs can simply be cut off, leaving no extra thickness or mark on the paper for framing.

If you are interested in framing this artwork please contact Bluethumb to help you find a recommended framer in your area. I feel this piece would look beautiful in the simplicity of a white or natural light timber frame.

Thank you for taking the time to view my art. Mx
