Papier Lasagne

The image of the robot head from the previous post didn't do it justice. So I am posting this again. I have made a few alterations adding the x mark in an area I thought needed a little something. Also the darker border adds a little depth. The size of the image is 60 x 58 cm . When framed and finished it will make a great statement piece.

Inspired By Bots In A Box

So I am still creating larger works using a paper lamination process called "papier lasagne" . It basically results in a large but terribly strong paper surface to paint on. These two works are directly inspired by the "Bots in a box" sculptures I make. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Bather In Number Ten

Inspired by my bots in a box and still happy to experiment with my reinforced paper. I have been working on a new series of acrylic paintings. This is the first of many. I have at least 4 more being assembled. The process requires reinforcement of the back of the paper and a layer of  coloured tissue paper to add a ground colouring for the impasto and acrylic paint.
