During my Painting degree course in London and as part of a university project, I decided to incorporate this indigenous tradition into my contemporary painting practice. Using a technique I developed myself, I created a material from just oil and gloss paint and used this instead of natural fibers to weave a piece on a wooden board. Many liters of paint were left to dry in trays over a long period of time allowing the surface of the paint to dry into a skin thick enough to allow me to peel it from the wet paint underneath. Once the peeled sheets of paint skin were dried but still malleable, I cut them into long, thin strips and wove them together. I took the resulting piece and created folds like a fabric giving the flat surface of the board a third dimension, allowing the work to explore the liminal space in-between the practices of painting and sculpture.
