Size and Specifications
Making Soup - Thailand, 2014
acrylic colour on handmade thai mulberry paper, deckled edge, 21 x 31 in., 55 x 80 cm.
I've had the reference pictures for this one for many years, always loved the angle and dynamics. And I once… long ago… did a small 8x10inch painting of this. Someone out there has it… So now I want to do it on the large paper, bolder strokes, colours toned down.
Here I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. It's a thick parchment paper, strong yet pliable. The paper is handmade to this size to get the unique, uneven deckled edges which adds to the overall textural effect.The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
Then there's the work well in progress in the studio.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a family portrait or other, a storyboard collage from a recent travel, event or performance? Contact me.
Provenance / History of This Item:
When considering framing bear in mind to not cover up the deckled edges. This is one of the specialties of the painting, one of its charms. It is best displayed framed with a cut mat board around the painting so as not to cover the edges, thereby putting some space between the art and the glass and bringing depth to the framed art. It can also be framed simply with backing board and pressed with glass over the front without causing damage.
