* New Fizzy POP, Sugar DADA & Polka Pop Spot Painting series of artwork for 2016. I have recently been experimenting with new digital media and painting. The painting is hand painted with a digital brush which can achieve effects impossible by traditional means. I am calling this my 'Fizzy POP' & 'Polka Pop' Series. This particular artwork uses a hand painted brush 'loaded' with paint spots where the parameters (chosen by the artist) are altered to create different splatter effects. All the spots are flat colour and perfectly symmetrical circles, offset to give the impression of different shapes, textures and surfaces.
***Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) is recognised as one of the greatest artists of all time. His celebrated images are firmly embedded in public consciousness and his influence permeates art, design, fashion and film. However, although lauded in his lifetime, Botticelli was largely forgotten for more than 300 years until his work was progressively rediscovered in the 19th century. (V&A)
