    AWAKENING LIGHT original, mixed media on 76x60cm stretched 3.5cm deep edge canvas.


    In the mid 1890's my Great Grandfather, Alexander Morrison left the shores of bonny Aberdeen in Scotland. A pioneer, he sailed across the oceans to Australia in search of gold and a new beginning.


    Incorporating the colours and rhythms of the ocean, gold minerals and using the concepts of Kintsugi, that is hope and healing I have created this new technique featuring imitation gold leaf, layers of watercolours and ground pigments.

    Fibres and charcoal pigments create an intriguing texture in the first layers. It has a double chromatic effect which changes with the direction of light.
