Papier Mache Bowl, acrylic paint 140 x 220 mm
Being creative is my itch that needs to be scratched, my therapy. In the past my creative pursuits have taken many forms, paint on canvas has always featured though. Lately I have rekindled a love for papier mache. It brings me back to that joyous moment in primary school when the teacher would announce ‘Today children, we are doing papier mache!’ For me Bright and Bold speaks of fun, joy, and in this case the joy of creating. I have tried to capture that in this body of work, a celebration of fun and frivolity.
