Two-and-half-dimensional painting – acrylic on ropes and papier-mâché on canvas

There is something incredibly reflective and comforting about this painting, it is an image of home and belonging. The application of paper mache and string give a sculptural depth to the image. Colours of land, sea and air give the painting a geographical context, a sense of land and sea being connected to a place of belonging. Memories that become stronger in absence. The overall impression is one of looking back, or looking down on a homeland from above. The anchor image on the bottom left feels like a symbol for both travel and security.

The painting found a new home! Now it will happily reside in romantic Paris, near Seine, thanks to Fiona Robertson:
