In 'Cocoa' I was drawing inspiration from Cave Art paintings that would serve as maps, historical records and stories but also reflect man's innate desire to paint and to create art. This work is primarily layers of painting combined with collaged elements. However, I also used the decollage technique - I built up layers of composition, color and abstract imagery and then stripped parts away by cutting, tearing or sanding. I repeated this process until the work reaches a balance. The artwork comes with a signed gold foil blocked certificate of authenticity (COA). The COA is provided to protect your investment and to protect the long term collectible value of your artwork. The unique design of the gold foil blocked seal confirms the COA is authentic and was provided by the artist Simon Kirk, and the related artwork is absolutely and unquestionably by the artist who has signed it.
