acrylic on canvas
I love working in black and white… there is something about the simplicity of it but it can be powerful and intense too. Often you can get carried away with the colour of something but the black and white artworks keep you focused on line and composition and other elements.
This work was inspired by my love of Sydney Longs artwork and particularly his trees. they flow together and i love that. When i’m cruising around i’m always looking at tree trunks and branches… love to squint and look at their lines. Gums are great for unique branches and trunks.
With this work i couldn’t decide whether to work black on white- or white on black so decided to do both which evolved into the mirror image element.
