Original mixed media painting in ink pen, wash and acrylic on heavyweight paper.
"Finished with high gloss varnish for vibrancy (see studio view of this painting to pick up the sheen) A4. Part of the 'Shroud' series - An ongoing experimentation and play with ideas and emotion, some being threaded into larger oil paintings. This particular piece is one of my works reflecting my love for David Bowie, a tribute in paint."
Toni Cogdell paints portraits of unsaid moments and unseen thoughts, the poetry which resides in daily life and in transitory moments. There is a sense of universality, an interest in the human condition.. “The Water’s Gift” portrays a woman, lost in thought, painted in rich tones which complement and merge with the background. Cogdell’s figures stand in ambiguous settings emphasising an intent focus on the cerebral. Every piece is painted with a carefully balanced palette and distinctive, contemplative composition.
