Original mixed media painting in mixed media on paper.
Mixed media painting in pencil, acrylic and clay wash on hot press watercolour paper (2 pieces of paper joined together).
"My ongoing exploration of Human experience and our connection to nature. This is one of the pieces of work using clay wash as a 2D medium, a natural material itself linking the figure to nature, emphasising our flesh as the 'clay of our being'."
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.
