Gourds (2020)

Watercolour on canvas (varnished)

71cm x 86cm


Gourds explores cross cultural meanings of representational objects and themes. This painting draws influence from the historical still life genre in Western painting and Chinese brush painting. The incorporation of calligraphic flourishes investigates the ineffable nature of language, writing and painting.
