Rippling Out [SOLD]


Of all the pieces I have made using silver leaf so far, this one seems to shift and change with the light most dramatically. It really makes me think of the way water reflects the bright sky one moment, then appears dark, even black, the next. I think it’s because there’s such a range of marks in this piece, with a chunky dark line beneath finer meshes of soft grey, silver and white, as well as layers of opaque gesso covering areas of the silver ground entirely.
