Linear Lands Collection: Phacelia, Hindolveston, Norfolk. Original Painting
Linear Lands Collection: Phacelia, Hindolveston, Norfolk
Bands of wonder in a local meadow where phacelia forms a lacy border to rustling wheat, a ragged hedge, all dwarfed by a row of Scots pines.
Phacelia is a wonder plant. It has beautiful scented purple flowers with dense fern-like foliage. It smothers weeds and has an extensive root system that improves soil structure- it is often used as a green manure. It grows quickly showing blooms for 6-8 weeks - providing an excellent cut flower and one of the top flowers for bees and hoverflies.
An original painting by multi-award winning artist Jac Scott framed in a deep white wooden frame.
The artist has signed the painting on the back with the title - both visible from the back of the frame.
Dimensions framed: 43.5 x 43.5 x 6.5cm
Linear Lands Collection
North Norfolk with its big skies and undulating vistas specialises in creating layered wide and sinuous bands of landscape.
There is a rhythmic poetry where bands of interest stretch across the land forming stripes of colour, texture and form. This striping delineates and dissects the panorama leading to an inspiration that explodes across the canvas - broad strokes of emotion and energy captured in paint.
The ancient method of encaustic art was practiced by the Greeks and Egyptians with 2000 year old examples still in existence. Wax and pigments are fused with heat which dries quickly capturing brush strokes, drips and textures. Encaustic art is an all consuming very physical practice.One is seduced by the process of not just applying paint with a brush, palette knife or hands but also the harnessing of heat to energise materials and move the liquids around. The fluidity of the process allows the materials to mix and metamorphose.
