Darkness – Taipouri

Enamel on Canvasboard
670mm x 283mm

This is my first in a series of using sgraffito to create landscapes through a layer of black enamel. The gloss enamel creates a depth to the black and allows the rest of the colours to shine through. Darkness – Taipouri is a part of a larger series where I looked at using English and Maori words to create an added depth to the paintings and create some New Zealandness with them.
