This is entitled 'Sunday ______ Sunday #13' and is one off artwork part of a collection of original, one off Monoprints Sketches on A4 Paper.
This work is White with a Red tint (Red tint added for clarity, making slightly Pink) and part of the Air Element, see below. It is to represent the White Surrender Flag during the conflict of Bloody Sunday in which 13 (ie. #13 in tittle) lives were lost.
This is collection of one-off unique Monoprints. The Artist is exploring Colours. Inspiration for the Colours have been taken from the Colours of 'Lego' Building Block, as either Single Colour Monoprints, Primary Colours of Blue, Red, Yellow or Duo-Colours made up by mixing two Primary Colours together to form a new colour of Orange (made from Yellow & Red), Green (made from Yellow & Blue) etc.
Secondly, the Artist is exploring these Colours by relating these to Four Elements, (Fire, Water, Earth & Air), and a Fifth Element (yet unknown, TBC). Such that Fire, relates to the Sun, Water relates to Sea (Refugees at Sea, Survivors of the Titanic), Earth relates to Aerial View of the Landscape (Green Landscape of Eire, Ireland, Yellow Ochre of Aboriginal Ayres Rock, Australia etc), Air relates to Sky, Universe, Aircraft (White Flag of Bloody Sunday flying in the Air) etc, inspired by film 'The Fifth Element' (1997)
Monoprints ('Lego' Bricks) are to combined to form a new Larger Work, (i.e 'Wall' made up of 'Bricks'), has been inspired by Henry Matisse work 'The Snail'.
This is piece of Conceptual Art. It is to form a series of unique but repetitive works, each individually numbered (by crossed out, this is #13, hand made to order). This has been inspired by the Bloody Sunday on the 30th January 1972, in Derry (Londonderry), Northern Ireland, UK, and is inspired by the film Bloody Sunday & music band, U2, see below.
