The relic of an Angel kneels before the moon in a ring of gold while the Florentine wall behind crumbles.
This piece has been distressed by me to reveal the layers of the painting beneath which is a rich turquoise from the real copper I use in my work.
The inspiration for this piece was a past trip to the beautiful art city of Florence. That trip had a profound effect on me as an artist. I fell in love with Florence and it's crumbling walls and little shops with craftsmen using gold leaf to guild antiques.
I am also inspired by ancient murals on disintegrating walls where the art becomes faded with time.
This painting is a mixed media of emulsion, oil paints, acrylic and pencil all set on a backdrop of distressed plaster and real copper and gold leaf.
This painting comes ready to hang and unframed. It is painted on a chunky canvas. I only use good quality, professional artists canvases made by Loxely gold. It has a signed certificate on the back.
I aim to keep my art affordable.
