Additional Information

ARTWORK: ‘Gossamer’

TITLE:  ‘Gossamer’ is an abstract expressionist depiction of a ballet costume in mixed media on canvas.

The title Gossamer is a reference to the fine, sheer, lightweight nature of tulle. It also refers to the painterly effects within the artwork that have been created to reflect the distinctive character of the subject being interpreted.

DESCRIPTION:  The nature of the painting is part abstraction, part figuration, part opacity and part translucence. A contrast of light against dark, silky smooth against heavily textured.

The image features fragments of ivory white paint delicately layered over a tactile, contrasting base of mottled reds, lilacs, golden tones and smokey blacks.

The artwork is an exploration of various painterly effects, from finely applied layers of paint to embossed surfaces in mixed media.

The abstracted image floats dramatically over the impasto background of speckled colours and charcoal blacks.

The painting is available for viewing in Cheltenham, Melbourne, prior to purchase.
