Notes on an Air Raid

an original mixed media painting on cradled wood panel (birch)

12 x 12 x 1.5 inches

ready to hang – wire hanger attached

sealed with gloss varnish

original drawings + paper collage + painting elements + pigment washes + prints on wax paper + typographic collage • found ephemera

I make a collage painting in layers, building up and then tearing away, adding layers of thin wash, until the effect is like a ruined billboard, with the history showing through.

Chaos contained in a frame.

Bombs do not choose. They will hit everything.
~ Nikita Khrushchev

I acquired a hunger for fairy tales in the dark days of blackout and blitz in the Second World War.
~ A. S. Byatt

shipped with masonite or other board for protection

everything from my store comes with an extra art surprise
