Here’s a few of my kaleidescopes where I have been exploring colour and pattern I have used different methods, including collage, oil paint and acrylic paint.
I have been working on a new painting similar to Joan of Arc painting. This is of a statue of St Francis of Assisi which will have moss growing on it. I will be using similar motifs to the Joan of Arc painting. I had to redo the figure as he was too slim. The black and white paints are harder to use than the metallic paints. It’s in the stage that I don’t like at the moment, but will keep on with it.
I’ve been casting some virgin Mary statues this week. I want to make a few for my living room in an assortment of colours. If you’d like your own to paint or any colour take a look on my website http://www.whitebgallery.com
Where do you get your ideas from? Is it another artwork, wallpaper pattern, book etc… my latest arework is of Joan of Arc. I had seen a gold statue at Christmas in Paris by the louvre museum. I then saw the Dior spring/summer collection with its tarot and bee keeper designs. I decided to use some medieval stars inspired by the tarot cards. These may have small beads sewn into them. I am going to incorporate some text which will say, she’s more than a lady. I heard this in a Duran Duran song, girls on film. Because she definitely is, more than a lady.
