This contemporary artwork by Antoinette Ferwerda demonstrates a bold abstract composition that suggests an organic influence of the everyday with a fresh twist. The mixed-media approach applied by the artist produces captivating textures and interlocking forms. Working in layers, the compositions the artist achieves are infused with twists and turns that merge organically. Evoking the natural world, a vivid and rich palette of colours complements the dynamism established within this enthralling artwork. Featuring expressive drips and gestural paint strokes, isolated with flat tonal areas, a meticulous process is revealed which imbues the piece with deeply ethereal qualities. The artist employs a mixture of mediums including synthetic polymer paint, collage with gold metallic leaf and UV gloss varnish on canvas, framed in natural oak.
