“Traverse” from the Contour Series.
Abstract acrylic painting on 30cm x 30cm multimedia board, float mounted into 44cm 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.
Through the dense undergrowth
And thickly forested trees
A shaft of shimmering light
Entices us to wander blindly
Amongst its depth
To a path that promises of more
Step through the leaves
Traverse the mists of time
