Solid as a Rock


Mixed Media on Canvas 214 x 122 cm

This painting encompasses all that we are and can be, just like a rock being constantly battered and beaten by the elements and pieces being broken off but still standing, and all that we endure remaining strong and steady for those we love and care about.

The use of pure pigment powder and dust, extracted from rock and pigment I ground down from pebbles with a pestle and mortar or hammered to make rougher textural pieces, has been used along with other ready mixed pigment. This I poured and sprinkled and mixed with different bases brushing the colour onto the canvas gesturally creating movement and drama.



If you are interested in any of my paintings and would like to discuss possible exhibitions or commissions then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
