Beyond the Surface 4 – Layers in Time

Layers in Time

A1, pasted newspaper with acrylic on paper

I’m experimenting with ways of portraying the past, time and memories in paint. Here I pasted headlines from the Times newspaper and then poured paint down the paper , partially concealing parts with masking tape which have been removed to hint at past issues without telling the full story. Each layer of paint was in a different colour before finishing with a coat in gold to conceal the previous layers.

    I love the layers and the drips, and the part revealed scraps of news stories … intriguing!
