An original artwork, depicting The Caribbean and its relevant features. My collages are in the main acrylics, but there is many many layers, starting with pasting various printed pictures randomly on the canvas, which, by the time the painting is finished are only just visible. There is much printing, stencilling and stamping to bring the painting together. And here, I have used a naive, simple style of printing. Something I really enjoy finding a use for is the dried acrylic paint scrapings from my palette. In the case of this painting, the islands are created this way, and then painted gold and then in parts have the addition of 24K gold leaf. A collage painting offers a lot of interest to the viewer; and discoveries will be found constantly.
