My Unshaken series is about the things in life that stand unshaken. Like love, or truth. The Unshaken collection allows me to play, experiment and try new things within a very limited colour palette. Limiting the colours I use lets me push the medium in ways that highlight the glorious nature of the inks - letting their intrinsic qualities be the show. Mountains seem to be among the most solid and permanent parts of our world. In times of challenge and turmoil, as the covid times have created for us, I've been thinking about what's really important, the things that truly matter and how I can live into those more. Love rises to the top. Love remains Unshaken.
Unshaken II was painted in 2021 and is an 12x16" alcohol ink original mounted on a birch panel. It is sealed with a varnish and UV protectant, (but alcohol inks should never be placed in direct sunlight).
