Gold

6 Dec 2020

I’ve recently started using gold metallic paint in my work. I did this instinctively or intuitively and realise now its power as a symbol of eternity, the immortal and the divine as well as light.

So during lockdown I’ve been trying to bring light into this strange world, to bring hope and joy and fulfilling a desire to “make something lovely or strange” (Olivia Laing, Tate magazine issue 49, Art in an Emergency)
