Caroline Banks - Shift (triptych)

Caroline Banks - Shift (triptych)


Ink, watercolour gesso, pen on natural linen board 23.5x44x3cm framed

One of a series of triptych studies, a popular landscape format, originally developed from sketchbook drawings sometimes worked up into larger pieces to commission.

Mounted and framed in matt black wood.

Caroline uses the expressive and gestural quality of brush, gesso and ink with gilding and piercing in her explorations into the fluid and fugitive nature of memory, bearing witness to the passage of time. Some pieces can appear almost archaeological, surviving fragments from an unknown past.

Chance is an important element of the creative, meditative process with unpredictability playing its ever-present role as in life. She works with her materials on the knife-edge of control; once a mark has been made it cannot be taken back and the interplay between materials is itself a fascination.  

Her aim is to create contemplative yet celebratory pieces, giving the viewer time for quiet reflection in today’s busy and sensorially bombarded world.
