Original painting in acrylic on board presented in a simple frame.
"Excavation x is part of the 'gouged' acrylic series, where I cover the surface in multiple layers of paint and when they are dry carve into them to reveal concentric circles that swarm across the painting plane, confusing the eye and tricking the brain."

Willett’s paintings are visually mesmerizing, tonal paintings that emerge from what seems like an endearing and hopeful obsessive compulsion – a visual ambiguity is manifest. The finished effect is like watching continually moving shoals of fish or swarming insects. Sara Willett’s paintings are held in collections in the UK and throughout the world, and her work has been featured in A-N magazine.
