Whats behind this image?

 

One of my large circle paintings (91 x91 x4cm) this time on deepest ultramarine blue velvet that has been stretched over a deep edge canvas.

 

The origina work is for sale in my paintings collection.​

 

An impasto central circle with a ring of white and shimmering silver surround a graphite grey border which also has metallic silver accents that reflect and shimmer.  

In this series of paintings I have used  lush cotton velvet that reflects light beautifully with the nap which pops and jars with the jagged nature of the mark making. The deep blue entices the viewer to look and then look closer to where the idea rests.

In my painting I often use the paint like any material, to obtain a surface a texture, a sculptural property, more  than in a more traditional way, to represent. I like to work on different surfaces to evoke a particular feeling, association, or thought, such as velvet, rubber, vinyl, wood as well as canvas.

Juxtaposing very different surfaces and colours, I wanted the mark making to stand out, to interfere.  I wanted the painting to be more like a scar, a blemish or wound upon the perfection of the velvet and to represent imperfection, or rather the beauty of such.

​​

Oroborous (there are many similar/different spellings) is, very simply,  the ancient symbol of eternity as a snake eating it's own tail.

  • About this download

    About this digital download:

    A link to the imagewill be sent immediately upon payment.

    This is a large file at 300dpi /36apx MB which can print sharp up to H48 x W28cms H19 x W11" so will fit fine inside most standard paper sizes and frames with a border.

    Although you can print on to any paper, I recommend an archival fine art paper if you intend to use as an art print. An excellent choice would be Hahnemeuhle rag paper in a satin or vellum finish. https://www.hahnemuehle.com/en/digital-fineart.html

    Printing on paper between 200 and 300gms will work in most home printers and will give your print a firm place to fix. You can also use the image for a canvas, aluminium or other print.

    The image is set at the ratio of a generic tarot card size apx H12 x 7cm H5 x W3" and keeps this ratio up to the largest size so there will always be a border to your print which you can crop as you wish. Please see image of print with border.

    Any problems with your download or any questions....just ask via chat on webpage or email sand451@hotmail.com
