I have only been posting works related to my online courses recently. I have to admit that it takes a lot of time. Nevertheless, with Valentine’s Day approaching, I decided to do something a bit different. Here is a Roman capital decorated with white vine on a support of patinated copper leaf, the whole being made with acrylic paint. I take this opportunity to wish you (with a little advance), full of love in this new year.
And, if you doubt my ability to realize a patinated copper foil collage, you are right. It is my wife who made it… All I did was to scribble my Roman capital and its associated Vine over it.
All I need is love and a woman who does great things to help me 😉
It’s been too long since I’ve posted a message on this blog. The fault is mine, mea culpa. So here is a new work, it seems I can’t get rid of the NEULAND lately. It’s a quote from Pascal Quignard, embossing on paper blackened with iron gall ink, insertion of golden patina by my wife.
loneliness, a precious stone, silence, darkness
Sorry for the quality of the pictures, the black of the paper is quite shiny and I couldn’t get good pictures in any lighting.
And it is a reinterpretation of Mendeleev’s table as he presented it in 1870. Of course, some elements are missing compared to what we know today and the usual representation reverses the lines and columns compared to this one but it is always good (or almost), to return from time to time to the fundamentals 🙂
I calligraphed the symbols of the elements with walnut stain and I decorated the table with iron gall ink, decorating the different cells with small clouds of electrons.
And (I shouldn’t say this but you don’t get to do it again), I had made a mistake in the position of the gold (Au), I cut out the incriminated square and replaced it with an embossing of a golden patina that my wife had made on kraft paper. I think it’s very beautiful, it’s normal, it’s my wife who made it 🙂
