The discovery of some vintage papers in a scrapbook was the starting point of creating these works. The paper has a suede-like feel and the edges are slightly discoloured with age. Each of the pieces seemed to suggest different ways of working, the approach I used was to begin by applying white acrylic paint and then coloured inks after wetting the paper slightly. It took time to add each layer, patiently waiting for drying time...I have a reverence and keen interest in using asemic writing in my work - script-like marks which are unreadable but seem like ideas of text. Some of the pieces use collage elements which I have painted and cut.
These Timeless Moments pieces are titled after favourite phrases in poems of TS Eliot.
