Mixed media : oil, acrylic and collage paper on stretched canvas 30X30 cm
I have two creative processes. In the first process, I create my artwork relatively quickly, in several consecutive days.
This mixed media artwork, here, is typical of my second creative process where the time takes its time...
I created this Collage on canvas a few times ago.
I tore paper bands irregularly. I had the idea of a landscape,
but not a particular landscape.
With natural cellulose adhesive I stuck my torn papers (beige, brown, cream, red, yellow) in layers which define an invented landscape.
I kept the white of the canvas. Red paper was surprising but I liked it well.
It was perhaps also too extremely, too daring, and I did not know how to finish the work.
Quite simply, the work did not speak to me.
I thus left it side, arranged out of my sight and straightforwardly forgot. A long time.
By making the inventory of my paintings, a few months ago, I found it and I saw it with a new eye.
I knew I could do something of it, even if I did not know what yet. The artwork spoke to me finally.
By leaving a great part randomly initially,
I took it again with oil painting : dark and transparent greens olive,
underlined with opaque layers of pale green, adding frank yellows
in order to accentuate the idea of the landscape and its depth, without entering a naturalist description.
And then, I saw that work had finally its own life...
The edges are painted. No need to frame.
All my original artworks are shipped with a certificate of authenticity.
This work of art is signed at the back of the canvas.
