Artwork description:

Nature Circle 9.
Crushed Japanese Maple Leaves.

Gillies designed a circular ring shape which was routered out of the board to create a pool, this was painted and then spray painted with a warm cream white.

Within the circular pool, the artist added real crushed autumn Japanese Maple leaves to clear resin and these are floating in the ring.
The entire piece was then given a uniformed coating of resin to finish.
Frozen in time these leaves are suspended within the pool. The collective tone of the Maple leaves is rusty red and light copper.

The painting is finished with a coating of clear resin.
Gillies uses resin as his prefered finish as it distributes light in a way glass or varnish cant. It also has an effect on the intensity of the colour of the paint, Gillies likes the way this works on with the leaves, it also protects and seals the painting.

The Japanese Circle Collection was inspired by a winter spent in Japan exploring the beautiful landscape and forests. Made from his Glasgow studio.
