About the artwork:
Heavy body acrylic textured, splashed, carved - this modern abstract female form piece is based on a poem of temptation, she wants to lure you in you want to be lured. She isn't waiting for approval in the gaze you give her - she already has it and she knows it. I wanted to create an incredibly tactile piece, with the grit of contrasting textures and heavy with ambiguity – is she coming towards you or looking over her shoulder as she leaves?
This piece captures both modern minimalism and the grit of street art to bring together a vivacious piece designed to capture your attention again and again.
Modern, sleek, and captivating, this original hand-painted piece would look stunning on any wall, a strong piece creating a focal point in your room, adding luxury and intensity.
The style is contemporary, with nods to street art and graffiti.
This piece is created from an original poem – both the poem and artwork come together, signed.
This canvas piece is hand-painted acrylic and ink over high quality 100% pure cotton medium grain canvas then stretched over spruce wood.
Textured heavy body white acrylic forms the base of the painting, adding layers and direction to the art. Acrylic and ink are used to create the detail of splash and sprays, and gold lightweight acrylic applied to grooves formed by the white acrylic underlayers. The body is a combination of ink and acrylic brushed so add a blurring/smudged impression.
Please note that this piece comes without an external frame – the piece can be hung as is (canvas on spruce wood) to continue its minimalist roots or alternatively contact your local framers to have the piece framed as desired. Please note the textured elements on the canvas are raise so the depth of framing should you wish to frame it would need to be mindful of this.
Canvas is 0.75 inches deep

About the artist:
I am a self-taught artist, I first began drawing as a self-therapy and reconciliation of myself after undergoing a double mastectomy three years ago which changed how I see the body and what female sexuality is. I tend to be instinctive when I create and I work quickly on most pieces – I have never been the most patient of creatives.
I am also a poet and many of my pieces begin in the written word and transform onto paper or canvas. Often these pieces will be accompanied by the original written piece that inspired them.
I use layered and textured acrylic to create a visceral quality to the works and to represent emotion, which I hope makes the eye linger and search out more detail – your eye becoming your fingertips and craving touch. It is always a journey every time I draw or paint a body it makes me hyper-aware of how the outside world categorises women’s body, as a commodity, as an object, and how social media and public platforms dictate what is and is not ‘woman’, but it is also a reconciliation between my gaze on my own changed form and that which I control with ink or paint.
My work has previously been displayed in Parallax AF, Plathoes Cave, WATWA Art Girl Rising, and showcased at the MASA-UK Gallery.
