Oil on flax
About this work
Två is a large format oil painting on heavy flax, a coarser version of linen. The artist has prepared the surface with golden tones and clear size to seal the fibres and make them less absorbent. She then proceeds to paint the treated fabric with various oils. The painting follows the artist's ambition to depict abstract relationships in between people, situations and objects and follows her interest in still life and abstract representation of quotidian moments.
