This piece was made from one of those ramps that are used to keep cables tidy and stop people tripping over them. I don’t know what you call these things – perhaps someone will enlighten me. Anyway, it had been knocking around the estate for months, so I thought I’d use it.
I thought it would be nice to paint an icon, and I thought it might be nice to paint it with a black face (much more representative of the area I live in) – so I based this piece on icons from the ethiopean church, which has a really interesting history, if you’re aware of or interested in church history.
We’ll see what reaction if any this one gets. It’ll go out first thing on Friday 31st July 2008.Social tagging: art > artbizness > clapham park > ethiopean pax > free art friday > icon > painting > pax > radcliffe > ramp
