About this artwork
Liquid gold metal painted in expressionist strokes over a black ground. By using a limited color palette and a textural technique, this piece explores confinement and limitations, creating balance and beauty within the boundary, explains M. Clark. Created by carefully manipulating metallic foil with heat and varying pressure over the course of many weeks. This is a highly specialized and unique technique developed by M. to achieve her goals of bending light and drawing out distinctive elements in the foil. The work is very luminous and will display individual characteristics in different lighting situations.This artwork is currently on unstretched canvas.
