This piece was the second in my large experiments with the bleaching/layering technique. I have always been drawn towards organic form and I found that the bleach pooled in shapes that reminded me of mushrooms. She brings to ming a ‘Mother Earth’ figure and I found she partnered well with my first piece – ‘Adam’.
I continued to use the ‘Halo’ shape throughout my work as a way of echoing a motif that can be seen in most theological art dating back thousands of years. This area of light surrounding the head is balanced quite well with the physical act of ‘lightening’ the page with a liquid texture that also feels apt when considering the essence of consciousness.
