Additional Information

The Secret Ingredient by Janelle Amos – An abstract work to represent the sense of instinctive rhythm, flow and movement in the kitchen.
An everyday recipe becomes the conductor to an orchestra of ingredients, utensils, dishes, appliances,
pots and pans, with the Cook at the centre of the entire performance. Exploring the
intuitive movement and flow of a Cook, mapping the pace and flow around the kitchen, represented by
fluid sweeping intuitive brushwork on the board, celebrating the subtle dance and energy imprinted
within every kitchen, no matter the age or era. Many Cooks would resonate with the timeless flow that
comes over you in this sacred space of the home; the kitchen invites instinctive, intuitive senses, the
ingredients speak to you in their textural language, we tap into something greater than ourselves, into
the realm of all those who have cooked before us.

Inspired by a Poem by Thomas Moore, which is etched and scratched onto the surface of the work:
“The preparation of food serves the soul in a number of ways. In a general sense, it gives us a valuable, ordinary opportunity to meditate quietly, as we peel and cut vegetables, stir pots, measure out proportions, and watch for boiling and roasting.
We can become absorbed in the sensual contemplation of colours, textures, and tastes as, alchemists of the kitchen, we mix and stir just the right proportions.
The colours and the smells can take us out of ‘real’ time, which can be so deadening, and lift us into another time and space altogether, the time of myth created by cooking”

Selected as a Finalist in the 2017 Tatiara Art Prize.

Painted on sealed Masonite with professional Matisse acrylic paints, varnished in satin/gloss.

Original artwork. Signed on the back. Professionally framed in 5cm black/charcoal timber frame. Hanging D hooks and wire on back.
