Spring Blooms: Tall Poppies

Previewed in this post is Tall Poppies, one of fourteen newly completed miniature silhouette paintings that will make their debut in the group exhibition Wonder Room in mid-October. The series evolved directly from the miniature paintings and unique artist books that were exhibited in my solo show Tall Tales at Hand Held Gallery back in July.  

It is the introduction of selective areas of colour that most markedly differentiates this series from the earlier paintings. This, and their tall, narrow compositions, aligns them more closely with the vertical concertina artist books. Like the previous, even more diminutive black on white silhouette paintings, several of the new works, including this one, will serve as the basis for an artist book.
