Carousel by Heather Burton
Carousel, Mixed media on canvas, 100cm x 120cm
I love the freedom of expression and movement that a larger canvas offers and the scope it presents to develop a painting over a period of time. Carousel started with a series of marks and loose ideas which evolved into a mixed media extravaganza of vivid colour, loose shapes and layers. The dress is interspersed with print details from some of my dance paintings and photographs.
