In this piece I really played with the optical illusion created by using real string to emulate rope. This is a very tactile piece once viewed closeup but from afar you'd think it was just a simple flat painting.Each strand of rope was meticulously glued into place, following the direction of the rope. After this, a product was applied to stop the paint from soaking into the string too much and then I painted with acrylics.
This was a sample painting designed for my Agent to take with her when approaching galleries. This is why so much work went into just a small piece.With this painting you'll get a Certificate of Authenticity and a signed Artist's Statement.
