#OTBWR's: Alicia M B Ballard / Wood Diamonds and Other Eccentricities @ WR Community Centre Gallery
“ISLAND GLOW” $575.-
Alicia M B Ballard
9”x12” Acrylic/Mixed, on birchwood canvas incorporating a 4”x8” acrylic skin.
Using an ancient image “lifting” method with contemporary materials, whereby layering thin coats of acrylic the image is then “lifted” from its original background to be applied onto another. In this case, a larger one to enhance the size and mood of the original work. Inspired by another intense sky photograph taken by myself, backlighting the islands and clouds... From the Semiahmoo Magic Series.
