Dance of the Halycon Birds – Original – 75 x 34″


The scarf design borrows its design from a painting I created in 2015 entitled Dance of the Halycon Birds, a purely abstract endeavour, and if the first to be used for fabric printing. Printed on luscious chiffon made of thin polyester from Europe. As such, it is slightly transparent and is extremely soft and fluid to the touch.

The Process

In the act of painting a painting, I have always been conscious of how I paint and the way in which paint comes in contact with the surface of the canvas or wood. The motion, gesture or force in which the paint is applied is all a part of making marks onto surface. I apply the paint first with a brush, vigorously putting on globs of paint onto the canvas. Subsequently, I use a wetted cloth to spread the paint to create my ‘ground’ or first layer.At this stage, there is nothing I am trying to create that is intentional. That is, until now, and the beginning of the artwork that I have no specific description thereof. It is purely abstract. The sweeping and gentle pull of the cloth as it streaked the surface of the canvas was exceedingly exciting and beautiful, as I had applied two colour onto the canvas. This was the start of a new intention that I carried forth until the painting was, I felt, complete and whole.
