About the Image
Ground Stars can be found everywhere, if you look carefully. These are the intersections of the supports on the surface of the Gherkin in London. It’s a structure that inspires love or hatred. I personally think it is an inspired structure and skillfully executed. The light often catches the glass and look like stars on earth. Brilliant but impossible to reach.
Creation: Masking fluid is painted onto watercolour paper to create an image. This is covered with a watercolour wash and covered with clingfilm. The picture is further developed using acrylic inks once the film is removed. The masking is removed after several layers are added and allowed to dry. Revealing the final picture.
