“Smudge” from the Contour series
Abstract acrylic painting on 20cm x 20cm multimedia board, float mounted into 30cm sq painted frame. Painted in soft greens, light dusky blues, lilac and purple with copper leaf highlights and vintage maps covering the Wye Valley and surrounding area. Full of layers, texture, drips, splatter and grooves.
The poetry that accompanies this pieces narrates the sentiment that flows through it, inspired by the maps themselves.
Trace that thick line
That runs along the borderline
Between you and the dreams
That ride beyond
Smudge the boundaries
Step over the crevices
That divide you from time
