Colours of Hope
Colours of Hope - an original oil painting on canvas to mark the anniversary of Lockdown, March 2021.
Original canvas size: A2. Limited edition prints available in three sizes.
Drawing from connotations of candles as symbols for remembrance and rainbows as symbols for aspiration, this artwork uses imagery of candlelight and a polychrome palette to reflect upon the loss and hardship of this year, but to also offer a vision of hope: with wisps of multicolour smoke and the image of the Cathedral - a beacon of light in the vignette - it aims to mark the spirit of hope that has grown out of the darkness of the pandemic.
