A PIECE INSPIRED BY “THE SEA, THE WILD AND THE FORESTS” 

A COMMISSION FOR A MILAN HOME

This 45.2” x 86.6” piece is traveling to Milan next week.  Utilizing 51 washes of acrylic paint, this piece is inspired by the interplay of natural and industrial elements.  Subtle hues of Iridescent Gold is utilized within the white horizontal line, to not rest on the surface but is integrated within it - to have a feel of natural stone.  Mica pigment gives a pearlescent effect and is used throughout the washes so as the changing daylight shifts – the vibrant tones will bounce across the piece.  Using my hammer and chisel, the composition consisted of dominant Carbon Black lines to create contrast against the vibrant colours of Petroleum Green, highlights of Turquoise and Cobalt Blue. I am grateful to Bettina and The UKAMA Gallery for working on this amazing project.

"A VIBRANT FOCAL POINT WITHIN A SPACE" 

A COMMISSION FOR A WASHINGTON HOME

As a vibrant focal point within a space, this 48” x 48” piece is inspired by washes of Pthalo Blue, Turquoise, Cerulean Blue, Yellow Ochre and Red Oxide.  Some objects for inspiration to create this piece: a beautiful vase, the marble work within the fireplace and the clients’ love for a range of vibrant blues.   One of the highlights of this process: the clients were so kind in creating a coffee table book of the entire process of the commission to compliment the piece. Thank you so much to John and Barbara and The UKAMA Gallery for the opportunity to create this piece for your beautiful space.
