Paper Cuts March 2015

This is a completely new set of work for me, all in watercolour. Essentially I’m cutting a double image and either splicing two images together or superimposing or superimposing an “off cut” on top of a further wash.  In the case of the green banana leaves you can clearly see the three options that can be made from a single cut.

Elephant 1

This is the negative/white part of the cut placed on top of a graded neutral wash. The other two parts of this painting are showing at The Other Art Fair in Bloomsbury later in April.

This is Banana Leaves, the next three paintings are the same size at 50 x 70cm and are all from the same cut. This is the dark cut on a light wash
