80 x 40cm
Prismacolor pencils on Canson pastel board
My third abstract based on the patterns I found on a number of bricks, is close to completion.
In this painting I have included a ‘frame’ which is actually the motor surrounding the particular brick that I chose.
I wanted to ‘shut in’ the brick, but I also was conscious that doing such a thing may isolate the brick and make its presence too obvious. I decided to add some of the other shapes that I recorded on the wall where this theme originated.
At 80 x 40cm, it’s big enough to attract attention. When suitably framed I hope it will make a strong contribution to my exhibition next March.
I love the relationship between the brick and its surroundings. To me it closely resembles a landscape, hence the title.
