About This Piece
Ascension. Part of a series based on the bodies of dead birds. The idea of sacrifice and beauty are the thread that hold the pieces together. I use drawings in charcoal and wax as my base and surround this with distressed bronze. Oxidised on canvas.
I have a passion for traditional painting methods and approaches, melded with a love of pure drawing which I hope comes through in my work.
I also love and appreciate contemporary paintings and it is very enriching to be able to see the world through both lenses.
