Transience. Portrait No. 1
Original artwork, 2020.
This bespoke Italian plaster-on-canvas painting is one of a kind. It is handcrafted with authentic Italian plaster by patiently layering pigmented plaster to achieve a unique texture and colour effect that gives the work its remarkable depth and vividness.
Please note, actual work colours might differ from those you see on your device screen.
“Transience” is the limited series of original portraits on canvas that explores the definitions of beauty. The vast spectrum of human beauty cannot be defined by the lines of the body, age, skin tone, fashion style or perfection, but instead comes through as the intertwining of personality, inner light and the colours of self-expression. It is about finding the balance outside any definitions and expectations. Anything else is transient.
Texture becomes an expressive medium in these portraits. Made by layering pigmented Italian plaster on stretched canvas, these works are accentuated with touches of gold, acrylic glaze or ink.
Texture is an important expressive medium, and an intuitive creative process that guides my trowel. This loosening of control enables me to create works with a natural flow and tactility. By layering pigmented plaster, I am able to create a palpable texture that becomes part of the image.
