1032. Upfest 2017 (60)

I chalk up my sixtieth post from Upfest 2017 with this beautiful design from, Mary Rouncefield, a local Bristol-based artist who is building up a body of work concerned with human rights issues.

The symmetrical central patterns in white are decorated with simple leaves and four bright red humming birds, all set on a black background. I am not sure, but I would guess that there is a lot of symbolism going on here. It is certainly an unusual and striking piece. The artist’s biography notres continue:

‘Exhibitions in the past year have included ‘Alienation’ with Art Number 23 at galleries in New York, Philadelphia and London. I was very pleased to have been awarded Highly Commended by Red Line Art Works, for my art work commenting on the growing prevalence of firearms worldwide in crimes of violence against children attending school. Alongside this though, I have been experimenting with spray paint and produced ‘a series of canvases with a tropical theme.’

I think this piece s one of those with a tropical theme.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.
