Broken Together

2008
Enamel on Canvasboard
600mm x 280mm (each)
Using sgraffito to create landscapes through a layer of black enamel is very closely linked to God’s creation of the earth – first there was darkness, then He created. The gloss enamel creates a depth to the black and allows the rest of the colours to shine through. Broken Together is a part of a larger series where I looked at using words with opposite meanings to create an added depth to the paintings.
