w30 x h30 x d5cm | Plastered and painted hessian on wood panel
Inspired by Indian wood block prints this exotic pattern is painted in a pale cream colour on a madder red background and strongly outlined in black. Reminiscent of henna tattoos or carved wood the design is both geometric and floral.

It has had a thorough distressing with shallow cracks and rubbing back revealing the bare plaster beneath.


This painting is strung at the back ready to hang on a wall.

Care
These fresco secco panels are cracked and aged to give character and patination. On completion the plastered hessian substrate is glued to its wooden support and won’t crack or rub-back any further. Paintings where the hessian is wrapped around the panel edges may succumb to some minor flaking on the corners but a few knocks and scrapes are part of its “distressed” character.

Cleaning
The piece is finished with wax so may be buffed and polished to maintain its lustre
