Dust: The Long Barrow 1000x800. Local Wiltshire chalk dust and other real earths from the UK and Western Ireland bound with acrylic resins on canvas.
Another image inspired by West Kennet Long Barrow. I wanted to focus on the power of this earth mother image and on the 5500 (approx) years she has been there, much of it largely ignored. To build the deep impasto of dust I worked flat, sifting chalk through a tea-strainer onto painted glue, hoovering away the excess, repeating and repeating.
