Part of a series of paintings which depicts different doors and different openings. Inspired by my walking journeys between home and the unemployment office in May/June of this year.
They are done on canvases which originally were meant to be other images and have now received at least 5 layers of acrylic.
Personally, I find doors fascinating, as the face of a home or a place. They appear to say one thing about the place, but can present another upon entry.
This door started as vortex swirl followed by abstract borders and shapes. Eventually, I decide to frame it with an uneven octagonal border. The wooden texture and wood-ends were inspired by the browns of the original painting. This became an exercise in great detailing. The entrance paving is broken and cracked to contrast the structure and order presented by the wall.
