PleasureLand -Little Apples Will Grow Again Collage-Painting




This is a collage-painting that I completed a while back & it's only now that I've had photos of the full painting to show you.

'Pleasure Land-Little Apples Will Grow Again'

Handpainted detailing ,houses, trees,balloon ,apple,swirl design etc & then I've used 1917 music manuscript, 1950's magazine images ,old tea-stained lace,string and various other ephemera to create a concept randomly reflecting the world's general 'mood' so to speak,- a melting post of notions loosely as so..

Burst Balloon..it's all hot air...the bubble has burst The Church Café (detail)...solice...or not. Madonna and Apple(Centre detail panel)...The Big Apple (centre)..Stockmarket Crash...Forbidden Fruit...Man on Bended Knee(centre detail)..'what MORE can I do? Help me? Why? Now All are Sleeping (Houses) Burying our heads? Resting..waiting 'til all is calm?...recovering? Time...out of-? In-? -left?
Soul..depth
Love...strength
It's inevitable...that Little Apples Will Grow Again

Hi Rainey, what a beautiful piece of work - again! How are you? I caught a bad cold and are sitting here sneezing and sniffing, lol.

If you want to see a really funny picture of Gustav the dog pop over to http://extravaganzzavintagetreasures.blogspot.com/, I have just updated it.

How is your dog adoption moving forward?

Love, Kirsten

I stopped by earlier but couldn't comment because I had to let this piece sit with me a while. It is really complex and emotionally intense. Its visual beauty just adds to the intricacy. I wish I could see it in person so I could really take it in, but it's left quite an impression on me.
clever, lovely lass :D

This is just beautiful, Rainey~so many layers of art, and meaning...

(I thought your hands in the second pic were part of the piece at first, and was trying to wrap my brain around the significance...I need to go back to bed.)
