Artist's description:

"Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in." - Leonard Cohen

acrylic and yarn on canvas
30 x 40 inches (76 x 101 cm)
1.5" (3.8 cm) deep edge gallery wrapped canvas

In creating this artwork I wanted to examine the contrast in textures between yarn, paint and canvas. To accomplish this, after completing the painting, I punctured a small hole in the canvas and ripped the canvas all the way across. I then sewed up the tear by hand, using a needle and burgundy coloured yarn. In sewing up the canvas I ensured that the stitches were loose enough to still see the texture of the torn canvas.

The painting is wired and ready to hang. It is varnished with a gloss varnish to protect it from UV rays, dirt, dust and fingerprints.

The painting is signed on the side and the back.

A signed Certificate of Authenticity will be provided with this artwork.

creating art by breathing abstraction into emotion
pursuing confusion haziness obscurity
meanings shift
memories intrude
past and present fuse
poetic images in which myth and reality collide
