Oil on Canvas - 97x125x 2cm(38x49 x 1 inch) Stretched canvas (unframed) Painted edge. No hanging hardware included.

Ghost is from the artists Yeilding Collection - A series of works inspired by the zen philosophy that the "Softest thing overcomes the hardest" - Lao Tsu. These paintings take forms from water, clouds and smoke. Genevieve Leavold often examines themes of the human condition in her work. Seeing abstraction as a language to express her unique way of seeing the world.

Ghost (and it's sister piece Cloudbusting) are connected to childhood, to the fears and exuberance of childhood.

Drawing on her own childhood experiences of imaginative play, Ghost links to the remnants of this inner freedom we often felt as children, before the world became known and we existed half in our own imaginations and half in reality.

The forms loop and wheel across the canvas, like sea-foam, bubbling up and receding into the darkness. Painted in layers, wet into wet glazes, the colours are pulled into each other giving the painting a harmonious quality.

This piece would make a great statement in a living room, bringing a gentle energy to the space.

Ghost will be shipped stretched with a certificate of authenticity from the artist's studio.
