I decided that my art work, 'Priority Shipping' would work really well as a Coffee Table. It was already an artwork designed to be viewed on the floor, so all I had to do was create a wooden table frame for it. With the help of a professional carpenter, this work was transformed from a floor standing piece, to a coffee table height.
Next, I need to cover the surface with epoxy resin to make it usable.
One of the first paintings I've completed so far this year, titled 'Resurfacing' due to its emphasis on the surface texture here. This painting was originally created last year, to only display the texture of the acrylic paint underneath the silver, but I wanted to add something more to it. I decided to paint bright oil colours in the 'voids' of the surface, and scatter them around. Choosing where to apply the colour was a long process of standing back and reevaluating the canvas after adding each individual colour section. I decided it's finished now.
