Dither and Linger is a highly textured, layered work inspired by walking amongst rockpools with oystershells.
The lower layer is metal gilding which glints through the holes in the upper layer. The upper layer is fabric stitched with thread and wire, shells collected from a beach in Aotearoa/New Zealand, coloured with ink and rusting paint effects.
The work is varnished for protection. It is supplied mounted onto archival board ready for you to choose a frame to suit your home.
Size: 350 x 350 x 20 mm
