Empress Canvas painting, Belfast, 2016.
The Empress Painting was an experimental work I did for a friends birthday earlier this year. The canvas itself is 24″ tall, and was coated initially with a black and yellow emulsion. I used a combination of Acrylic paint and Printing methods.
I think I called it the Empress because the person in the picture, has always engendered power, trust and confidence, just as an Empress would.
The prints of the original are available, at 11″, 15″ and 18″ sizes.
