Artistic Explorations: Photography, Print and Paint (1)

For a while I have been playing with the idea to combine my photography and painting skills into one art piece. When Jack Tierney Gallery in Cults announced they were looking for new work for their exhibition "Spring", I knew this was the time to actually do it!

"Star of Bethlehem" is a combination of a photograph I took many years ago, then printed off at home onto Unryu paper I bought at a specialist shop, added some stamping underneath the translucent paper and it was all finished off with a brush and acrylics. The MDF board measures 9 x 9 " (about 23 cm). It's currently displayed in the gallery.

I loved working with Asian paper which is delicate but strong at the same time. The possibilities are limitless so I'm looking forward to create new paintings like this, perhaps even with paper I made myself!
