Artist's description:

Painting: Oil, cold wax medium, charcoal, pigment powder and marble dust on archival quality wooden panel

Size: 41 H x 41 W x 2 cm

This painting has been created using a cold wax medium on a high quality cradled board. It is primarily abstract and is based on a response to landscape, open skies, stained walls and textured surfaces. The constant brooding presence of the vast gothic structure of Ely cathedral permeates this work; running your finger tips across the surface you feel connected to the roughly hewn granite blocks, formed into grotesque gargoyles and anthropomorphic creatures. The image is built up in successive layers of cold wax and oil paint, with the partial erasure and reinstatement of previous colors and details. The cold wax allows for fine marks and incisions to be made with a variety of tools and instruments. The colors are warm and subtle, imbued with a rich patina and a sense of time passing.

This painting does not require framing and is ready to hang with grey edges

Keywords: warm, texture, cold wax, abstraction, intense
