“A magic cloth”
Watercolour, pencil & pastel on paper, 2014
‘A magic cloth’ is an almost abstract drawing in watercolour, of the ‘Saput Poleng’, black- white sacred cloth the Balinese use in their Hindu ceremonies. The watercolour gives this monumental drawing a sense of light and transparency. The little pastel coloured circles refer to the magic which is held in the cloth like a protective coat.
