Getting the most out of it
Each loop of paint on this purple and gold modern art work is a carefully balanced mix of chemical wizardry. There’s never too little or too much of anything and there’s a beautiful balance in how (and where) the paint applications are placed upon the canvas surface. Both loops join in a contained frenzy in the centre – like a mini explosion, and one that is packed full of tiny detailing.
The whole composition is painted on to a background of metallic copper, grey and black and this has been deliberately created with a staccato effect – meaning that I have kept the initial paint blends as they were done with a 4″ plastic spreader. I chose to leave this raw state rather than smooth them out like I normally do. I think the painting needed that to stop it from falling away into obscurity.
Give me gold!
Closer inspection reveals the textures that I have layered repeatedly into the gold paint. This particular mix has some incredible properties and is unlike any other I have. I can build up layers within layers to create valleys and chasm of paint and, as this is a metallic, the result is something spectacular when light bounces off it.
Can you live with it?
Yes! The combination of purple and gold are perfect for generating feelings of restfulness and warmth whilst promoting self-worth and celebrating your individuality.
It’s always reassuring and will never wrestle you to the floor. And unless you’re hell bent on turning your space orange or mustard yellow this is likely to fit in almost anywhere and with any interior colour scheme.
Its shape is perfect for behind a sofa or above a console table. Personally I’d get some reflective surfaces nearby like mirrors or mirror-plated furniture or even the odd bit of stainless steel somewhere.
