The New Golden collection evolved from the piece, 'Five Gold Rings', produced for the Christmas 2014 show at The Kitchen Window Gallery in London.
For the first time I worked back into my collages using them as a ground for further experimentation. They became sketches waiting for paint
Employing the medium of watercolour my own palette emerged to finally be garnished with a flourish of golden paint both as a surface device and riffing upon it's iconic religious origins. Gold became a material and a concept... until the last piece was deliberately created devoid of golden hues. 'End of The Pier.....Silence is Golden', is a dark visual riff upon common parlance... a pun for the series finale!
