This piece was admittedly in part, a serendipitous discovery. I wanted to create a piece with strong contrasting colours, that would be abstract by nature but might make borderline sense. I built the piece up in several layers working both wet on dry and wet on wet. When I had finished I realised that the top part reminded me of somebody in a haze, a dreamlike state with the top half of a face as if in a dream, the white ground softly creeping in to the image from the top right and left as if divine. The bottom section actually looks like Egyptian hieroglyphics partially obscured. The middle section is chaotic with flames, buildings and it instantly reminded me of Daniel's interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzars dream, concerning the ultimate fall of human government. Others may see it completely differently of course, whichever way it is a stark and decorative piece. Acrylic on canvas, finished with an isolation layer and 2 coats of anti UV acrylic varnish.
