Curse, represents conceptually one of the tragedies written by Shakespeare, “Macbeth”.
In thunder, lighting and rain the witches meet and curse Macbeth.
This collage suggests the constant force of evil and the battle between good and evil.
The collage is built up with thin pieces of paper; bare spaces are exposed in some areas, but most of the space is covered with thin pieces of paper or dots. The wavy shapes and the interweaving of different textures and tones suggest aspects of nature like a storm at the sea.
Three tentacles, in wavy shape and different textures, evokes the three witches constantly presence and embracing all the composition.
The central spiral shape lead the viewer's eye into the composition, stripes of paper run in different directions, suggesting movement and battle.
The dark and muted colour palette is inspired in The Scottish Highlands in winter. Using a patina technique, suggest a constant fog as a symbol of sin, obstructing clear vision.
Subtle allusions to hope, represented in a tiny Swarovski crystal placed in the centre of the composition, makes the collage evocative and strong.
