The crit exhibition is less than one week away! Making yet more cement paintings. Starting with the scale of work, and starting to play with different sizes of canvases.
While making the canvases I have already pre made the batons and hanging system at the back of the work. This was so I could just add a thin layer of cement.
The idea was that the surface was going to be polished and to achieve that a board taped up with packing tape was going to be layered on top of the drying cement. As the image blow shows this did not work as it also brought up parts of the cement surface.
But with the surface of the painting not perfect created an interesting effect and with the sprinkled gold leaf added to the top of the cement, finished of the piece.
