Bliss - Acrylic on Velvet 2019
Intricacy and bold mark making side by side over a deep red velvet. A multicoloured pointillist covering of marks with accents of metallics, pearl and deep glitters that have iridescent rainbow hues running through.
In different lighting, daylight, artificial, sunlight, low light, this painting speaks a different language, a different kind of bliss with each. Sometimes blinging and zinging with reflected twinkles and glitterings, truly celebratory!
Other times more muted with hints of shimmer and shine between the pools of mat deepest red darkness...just waiting to burst forth again like fireworks.
This painting needs a big wall with full lighting to shine and reflect it's essence into a room!
This is a heavily worked painting that has many many subtle layers going on at every level and are not visible without closer inspection. I use the glitter and gold as a seduction to draw the eye in to see these details, to understand the depth of the work.
I held an image of pure joy like a pop of perfect happiness for weeks and here it is!
