These new mixed media pieces have been inspired by the lakes at Sculpture by the Lakes. They arose from a fascination with the reflections in water and became an exploration into the properties of water: how the surface reflected the surrounding landscape but how I could also see into the depths, qualities I wanted to convey in the artwork. The use of resin on aluminium with tinted prints, gold leaf and acrylic paint provided the perfect medium, giving me the ability to create opaque areas whilst leaving other parts transparent. The constructive process is in many ways reminiscent of creating a sculpture which also appeals to my practical mind!
