Original painting in oil on canvas.
"On this particular day it occurred to them that if they sat for long enough, unblinking, they were bound to see it. Missing it again would be more than either of them could bare; as dusk loomed closer and threatened to engulf the forest two ringed-tails twitched in suspense.."
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.
