"Nursery Rhyme", 2016, 40 x 30 cm; acrylic, cut and painted paper, plaster, on wood.
The purpose of a nursery rhyme, beneath its bright and benevolent exterior, is to translate the chaos and confusion of life into a narrative comprehensible to the mind of a child. This painting, like a child's poem, is built up in layers, each layer amplifying and altering the ones above and beneath it. The simplicity of the individual layers belies the complexity of the collective image.
The painting is framed and ready to hang; signed and dated front and back, and titled on back.
