Small lively high contrast abstract expressionist or lyrical abstract painting. Gestural improvised composition using blackboard/chalkboard paint with copper metallic contour paste / relief liner and white oil paint over, on primed white canvas - wrapped board.

More recently I've begun exploring the possibilities of setting up simple rules and working very spontaneously and gesturally within quite arbitrary limits, e.g. limited time frame or number of brushstrokes; a very limited yet bold colour palette.

Dimensions: 10 x 8 inches
Work date: March 2011.

By self-representing UK-based artist Amanda Collis.

Signed and dated on the back and sent with a certificate of authenticity.
A small signature monogram will also be added to a lower corner of the painting surface.

Unframed. Digital borders added to give a sense of the painting on display.

Canvas boards may be framed easily, as only being a few mm thick they don't need a deep rebate and are made in standard sizes; one possibility is to use a good quality photo frame (minus glass).

Sent via Airsure (or International Signed-For, if Airsure is not available in your country) with priority handling, tracking code and delivery confirmation.

Thank you for looking!
