These are a selection of small affordable pieces on wood that will be available in my Etsy shop this weekend. They are a continuation of my exhibition theme "Nothing but a House"
Each piece has been created with texture in abundance. My aim was to create an old abandoned feel to the house, or a house that's been untouched for many years by it's owners. The peeling paint and layered papers are perhaps suggestive of neglect, abandonment or perhaps sorrow. These images give me great joy, i love the haunting eeriness of them.
Alternatively, a neglected house can also suggest the love of a home, perhaps a wish to remain in the past. bringing memories that may be forgotten otherwise, neglected in some people eyes but loved nonetheless.
"The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind."
