Artist's description:

This is a bright and cheerful abstract work created with texture paste, egg shell and gold leaf. It is framed with decorative chiyogami paper from Japan. I chose the colours in both the painting and chiyogami frame to complement each other.

The surface contains texture paste and natural substances such as egg shell. Gold leaf and powder add sparkle.

I discovered chiyogami paper when I was living in Japan. And I was immediately drawn to the rich colours and patterns augmented with gold and/or silver. Nowadays I source this paper from authentic suppliers of Japanese paper in the UK and USA.

These particular works are inspired by Japanese craft works such as book covers and borders on paintings. By framing my abstracts in chiyogami, I've added a traditional take on my contemporary pieces. It also references the fact that I began to create abstract works on paper while i was living in Japan, where I went on to have three exhibitions.

My vibrant abstracts are also inspired by my love of yoga, meditation and healing.

The dimensions here are approximate since the work is set onto a background of thick, textured white paper with a rough edge. This is part of the overall design. I have had previous similar works framed to fit the pieces themselves.

* The photos of the work in a frame are to give you an idea of how the work may look and is not included. This frame is a simple, standard-sized one.

Materials used:

Acrylics, texture paste, egg shell, chiyogami paper, gold paper, gold leaf, thick, white paper with torn edge.
