My latest artwork involving mixed media on wood with pyrography, to which I gave the title of “Playing with my Demons”.
That’s what it felt like! As you will see from the video, I started making this piece at the end of summer – the fan is on, I’m tanned and wearing sleeveless tops! By the end of it, however, I’m in woollies!
The reason is that I had been asked to collaborate on a piece for a mythological text (see this post) which had to be done within a month, so I had to put this one aside and come back to it…which isn’t always easy. The initial flow and inspiration having been interrupted I really had to delve deep into my psyche to work through this one. Colours kept shifting and changing reflecting the shifts in my mood and psychology.
But I plowed through and I worked through more of my resistance and so here we are!
I hope you enjoy the video which is basically a timelapse movie showing the stages of process. To see more of my artwork just skip on over to my website!
Thanks for watching!
