Original painting, in oil on canvas.
"Things are interesting from this perspective. It is not so much a hiding place as a watching place, and all that she sees fascinates and inspires her ever more. Of course there are days when the pattern overwhelms her, she feels trapped and she wishes to leap out and give up this secret place for ever....but the draw is too strong. Here she waits, she absorbs, she learns and grows."
Paris Blanche Magenta Foot's paintings retain a unique and distinctive visual language, which is immediately recognizable and absorbing. Foot’s mixed media pieces are also brilliant; tactile and engaging - and quite touching. The faces of the pieces - caught somewhere between figuration, puppetry and debris – are reminiscent of the luminous faces of the films of the silent era, despite being based on personal source material culled and elevated from family photographs. Stylistically incongruent, the expressions of the figures seem sweetly unaware of what the rest of them are made up of.
