"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.
