Ruin - acrylic painting on wood
An original artwork, acrylic and sculpture on wood panel, 2021
Part of the Destructive series of artworks, this is a piece considering our impact on things, cause and effect and various facets of destruction. The self, others, nature, the universe, etc.
I've built up parts of the piece by preparing the wood panel with papier maché under an extra layer of gesso, before painting onto it. To add yet more texture, I've used some impasto style painting. It's difficult to photograph the true effect.
Wood boards come with two wood supports mounted to the rear. Hardware for hanging (D rings and wire) is attached to these, so it is ready to go straight on your wall with a nail or screw.
