About Could be Branches, Could be Bones with Planets and Beams of Light Forming, Radiating, Dissolving into Parts of a Painting:
A nature inspired, imagined outer space scene. A large scale piece, pushing and pulling moments of marks through translucent or over muted, solid colour. The surface has a very dry texture to it and it sounds like sandpaper on paper when you touch it. It doesn’t feel/ sound like how it looks which is oddly pleasant.

1. A vintage style anatomical (‘L’Anatomie’) poster by Cavillini Papers & Co. Inc. (artist unknown) I’ve had since I was in my 1st year of university since buying it from a local fashion designer’s store . The pale colour of the depicted bones, some orangey parts of tissue/flesh and the stark void background is in my latest piece too.
