I really like how artists incorporated natural materials such as raw linen and canvas in mid century modern art and these materials were often used as backgrounds for modernist ceramic reliefs and inked metal plaque etchings. I have a few pieces around the house that are like that and I really felt compelled to try and emulate that aesthetic yet also keep it fairly contemporary. Available here.
Kite flying was always one of my most favourite pastimes when I was a kid. Later on in life as an adult I upgraded to stunt kites which are extremely thrilling to fly as they require quick reflexes and strength. These stunt kites usually come in bright and bold contrasting colours which was part of the inspiration for this series.
