lonely heart

a mixed media painting - collage

Using yellowed pages from old storybooks, I have created a new surface for gouache painting.... For this smaller collage in the series, I have painted a portrait of figures in black and red, with a house and feather. I like to make little hints toward stories and will allow you to make your own interpretations. There are snippets of text and typography, lending further hints and a nostalgic feel. All torn edges and marks are intentional.

Inspired by my sketchbooks and fascination with storytelling and shapes...

The collage has been machine stitched to a backing of white paper and is signed on reverse.

This work measures approx: 20.5cm x 14cm

Artwork should be framed behind glass - comes unframed. Due to the papers used, the work is quite fragile and should be handled carefully.

will come to you carefully packaged


This item will be sent via my standard delivery - first class in the UK and airmail to elsewhere. If you require a tracking number please ask before purchase and I can arrange at extra cost to you.
