Thicker than water
Acrylic and glitter
10'' x 14'' canvas
Taking the colour red, I was inspired by blood cells. But as I was still developing my style at this stage I have added different elements such as gloss and matt paints. Then taking it a further step, by adding glitter to some cells. Finishing off with some edges of the circles with textured gel. This allows a person to rub the fingers across the piece, by touching a piece of art you connect more to it.
This piece is strongly about engagement and connection.
Red is a very bold and strong colour full of symbolism and good fortune.
