Feather Center

by Hilary Clarcq

This oil painting evolved organically from one of the many abstract monoprints I’ve been making lately. I wanted to experiment with pressing different surfaces (string, feathers, paper, etc) onto the painting as another way to apply paint in addition to brushes.

I tried and failed a few times before getting a successful print from a large feather. In the end I really liked how the feather overlaps the figure’s silhouette as a symbol of inner lightness and peace.

Details: Oil paint over monoprint on paper, mounted on a 7/8" deep cradled panel with black edges. Signed in lower left. Comes ready-to-hang in a beautiful gold and black "floater" frame.
