Natural State of Nature Painting
The hand drawn lines in marker on chipboard is to evoke the growth of fungus. The coiled cotton cording glued together by cold wax medium mixed with oil paint is a cocoon, inside of it is mica glued and layered with wax. The collected items included within the layers of wax and paint on top a layer of tar; a pair of earrings, thread, hemp, dried hydreangea flowers, and a moth (cause of death was natural), and more mica, and congealed and coagulated linseed oil.
I wanted to be messy and imperfect like Art Brute and I was playing and experimenting with the material.
