Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

This large work is part of my Falling Women series. These paintings were completed during my Artist Residence at Chateau d'Orquevaux in France. The series explores the way women fall: both in terms of societal expectation of women but also more simply, reflecting our use of the word "Falling" or "fallen."
By way of example we commonly use phrases such as "fallen pregnant, falling out, falling foul, falling down" and so on.

Falling out is a figurative work depicting 2 people in conversation. Tellingly, they sit at a distance that suggests disharmony and a "falling out" of sorts. The work is modernised by abstraction and the use of bright colours. This (and others in this series) was inspired by many museum and gallery visits throughout Europe and by my reading of poetry and other literature.

The use of vibrant colour in this work is a departure from my usual practice and reflects a period of personal growth and change. Colour reflects both my own interior world but is also a powerful way to speak to the viewer.

This work is gallery wrapped and ready to hang
It will be exhibited at my Falling Women exhibition at Mulbury Gallery in Highett from 8-20 Feb 2019 and will be available again for sale after that time.
