From the ‘Energy’ series, Emotions Run Deep makes me think of our connection with water and the energy that it has. It can be calming, powerful, even destructive – just like our emotions. This painting has a calmness to it but is complex, like emotional connections can be. The stream of gold represents a strong emotional bond between two people.
This painting is coated with resin to protect from UV fading, dust and pollutant damage as well as enhancing the colours.
Whilst resin gives a clear, shiny finish it isn’t always perfect and there may be areas on the painting where the resin hasn’t evenly set.
Painting with fluid acrylics can be rather messy; the back of the canvas often shows this. Whilst it may not be perfectly neat and tidy it shows the authenticity of the process.
