Dark Horizons II: Chinese Burnt Orange
Dark Horizons II: Chinese Burnt Orange, 2020
4 x 4 inch
Acrylic ink & Acrylic on paper.
Following on from Dark Horizons I, these new pieces use Liquitex acrylic ink instead of Indian ink. This thicker medium has a cracking effect when it dries on some surfaces, which adds an intriguing texture to an already atmospheric scene.
Chinese Burnt Orange is a play on words which references the artist's grandmother.
'When I see this orange colour - and the way the black acrylic ink crackles, like rust on a car, or almost as if it's burnt - I am immediately reminded of my late Nan's 1980s Burnt Orange Cortina. And her love of giving me and my older brother the odd jokey Chinese Burn. She really was a character. I couldn't resist honouring her in the title of this horizon painting' - JRO
