Journeys - Painted reliefs
These pieces, made with acrylic on board and occasional mixed media, are all based on sketchbook drawings made while traveling and from memories of travel. This includes train and car travel, walking and even swimming in open water. Kevin makes small drawings based on things seen during these journeys as shown in the cabinet to the left. Back in the studio, another kind of journey takes place through the making of the pieces as the original ideas often develop and change into something different as the work evolves.
A selection from this series feature in 'Journeys - Painted reliefs by Kevin Petrie' at National Glass Centre, Sunderland 29 June - 6 October 2019. All works are for sale at £425 framed each. Please enquire at National Glass Centre shop.
