This is a mixed media image of a man and woman personnifying Night & Day. Dawn, dusk, Light, dark. Up, down.
It started off its life as a black and white lino-print (see in one of the pictures as an example) from the extensive series of hand-made prints on Japanese papers which I worked on in the 1980 - 1990s.
I recently fixed one of the few remaining prints from the edition, onto a deep canvas and worked on it by painting in acrylics....I love using a combination of blue and burnt sienna and also gold, copper and finally a pearlescent blue to create a subtle sheen. The latter is shown on the woman's brown face.
The paper is folded around the edge of the deep canvas. It is ready to hang.
Signed and dated on the front bottom right; also on the reverse of the canvas.
