Rag and Bones

This is the first painting for the collaborative show, RAG AND BONES, at the Ventnor Fringe Festival in 2019.

As a yoga teacher I am very interested in the anatomy of the human body.

I wanted to explore frottage techniques that I'd been experimenting with for many years. This painting shows this process with a large mono print as the foundation of the work.



Sometimes I love the simplicity of this 'skeletal' foundation but then I can't resist the challenge of painting layer upon layer of acrylic and oils.

The challenge is to integrate layers of history within the processes.
