“There is an unexplainable draw for me towards the way nature lives within a forceful contrast of gentle, life-giving beauty and raw, wild strength. Whether it is the way that a tree grows out of a rock, or the way wind shapes the weary trees, I am just mesmerized by these natural juxtapositions, and the strength and beauty found in the persistence of nature. It is a constant reminder to me, to press on, and never give up, for beauty emerges here. Alcohol ink characterizes this notion beautifully, not only because of its intense, highly saturated and yet translucent colours, but because of its chemistry and uncontrollable nature. It is a continual reminder to embrace the unexpected, and to persevere until something of beauty emerges.
Notes: Penny's alcohol ink creations are painted on a synthetic paper and then mounted to a gallery width birch panel. The birch panel has been sealed with a clear coat for a classy natural look.
