Jacques VIII

Oil on Canvas | 5 panels each 50cm x 50cm | Jacques Series |A$2,700 SOLD

Works from the Jacques Series are devoted to the study of the forms within the feathers of a peacock’s tail.  The peacock that inspired the work was called Jacques.  Jacques VIII is a white, texturalised appreciation of the forms.  Although not three dimensional in style, the whispy, fronds that surround the eye of the feather are scratched into the paint’s surface revealing the burnt sienna underpainting.  The body of the peacock is high relief but very subtle, almost hidden from view by the white background. Its form is secondary.
