The Layers of Life

$1,750

Artist: iefje Boissevain

Medium: Mixed media / resin

Size: 695 x 495mm

 

The original artwork you see here, comes from a very long, slow and meticulous technique made up of many overlays.

The process begins on a solid timber frame covered with ply, which then has all the different coatings applied. The first layers can include textured compounds, fabrics, papers, sand, bark, and driftwood. I recently have added fresh herbs, seed pods and other foliage from my gardens. Anything that will create texture really.

Then I use different types of paint, inks, metallic leaf, again layering each product, to create a vibrant and glowing piece of contemporary art.

Finally, the entire work is covered with 4 or 5 generous coats of UV resistant high gloss resin, which adds a rich appeal to the captivating artwork.
