25 x 25 x3cm acrylic, pencil, imitation gold leaf on stretched canvas, ready to hang. In this painting I’ve embraced the spirit of the Japanese art of Kintsugi. There is something beautiful about the idea that rather than hiding the scars, they are instead honoured as part of our journey in life and become something of beauty, filled with gold. Fresh summer colours of tangerine, pastel orange and watermelon pink with sky blue. Sections of imitation gold leaf fill the composition which was inspired by some natural patterns in coastal rock formations.
