Turtle Layers (Cityspace #209)

Turtle Layers (Cityspace #209)

Piece description from the artist

This piece was built up in daily layers over a period of weeks. I clustered "blocks" of water-resistant masking fluid and applied a wash after each addition. The result is that the "blocks" that were applied earliest in the process are the lightest in color, moving out towards the darker blocks on the edge of the piece. The process recalls the way that city shapes grow organically from an original settlement, and also the way we modify our environment to suit our increasing numbers.
