Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This painting is a mixed media masterpiece that boldly contrasts organic and synthetic materials. The main scenery is comprised of segments from a 30' outdoor scroll painting that was completed with petroleum-based acrylic paint and bleached factory manufactured fabric. The mural was painted over the course of 3 years in British Columbia and Alberta. It depicted Canadian-inspired mountain scenery in a contemporary Chinese Literati style. During an artist's residency at the Banff Centre in 2013 I tore it into pieces as a performance art piece, making way for organic materials to fill in the gaps.

I built panels from sustainably harvested wood, coated them with methyl cellulose and fine marble gesso and applied the mountain scenery with rabbit skin glue. Finally I added a single silhouette to each void with my own home-made gouache. The silhouette makes a symbol of nature's ability to slowly regrow herself to repair the destruction caused by synthetic lifestyles.

Materials used:

braced wood board, marble gesso, methyl cellulose, hide glue, casein, gouache, cotton, acrylic
