"Lion of the Harvest", 2016, acrylic and collage on wood, 60cm wide x 75cm tall (24 x 30 inches).
Torn paper is embedded in a matrix of acrylic and plaster, then sanded, to create the large pale "ground" area. Into this are collaged small elements cut from painted paper, which are then plastered and sanded in stages, so that some elements are almost obliterated, while others remain clearly visible. On the upper "sky" area, map pages, painted and cut in fluid forms, are collaged into a subtly layered background of greens, yellows and blues.
