Gossip

‘GOSSIP’ ORIGINAL SOLD QUICKLY!!
“Gossip is so tasty, how we love to swallow it” is a Proverb from the Bible. Gossip is a dangerous game and holds a message for us all. I wanted to portray this message in my work by creating a highly textured surface on which to paint, showing that life isn’t always a smooth ride! I did this by wrapping a bandage around the canvas which is there for a ‘protection/repair’ element. I’ve then again rollered products over the canvas to give ‘sandpaper’ quality, sealing in that bandage, using the same technique but with grey/blue acrylic paint, with purposeful drips that represent many tears and suffering due to GOSSIP. Then, in one corner is the Biblical quote scratched into the rough surface, with a pair of ‘beautiful’ dominant red lips below, from which gossip escapes; the face anonymously obscured into the background!! I chose the lips of a woman because apparently, we are the ones who do the most gossiping!!
