Too Crowded for Three
This original one-off painting was created by combining various photos that Gillian took in Peru. For the first time Gillian captures animals as well as figures in this scene, in a style that shows various abstract techniques in a new palette of warm, vibrant tones. To create this piece, Gillian firstly developed different colours and textures in the background using a variety of mark-making tools including sponges, palette knives, brushes and card with acrylic. She then used brushes to create the contrasts that make the scene stand out from from the background, and then gradually used layer after layer of brushwork and other tools such as stencils to create layers and pull the image together. The image is painted on a box canvas 30 x 30 cm in size, which is painted on the sides and signed by Gillian Hancey in the bottom right corner.
