ARTWORK THEORY REPORT


The relief texture was created using a combination of found objects and organic materials that were carefully preserved and tested for durability before being merged into a layer of gypsum. Upon setting, the gypsum was accordingly manipulated using sandpaper and box cutters. The composition was left to dry for a protracted period before coating it with generous layers of primer to harden it and prepare for sanding. Nails, screws and an industrial bonding agent resistant to humidity, heat and water was used to bond all the materials. The artist signature is rendered in gold at the bottom left corner of the painting.
