Love is a beautiful mess
"Love is a beautiful mess". Total size: 145 x 105 cm. This piece is inspired by the Japanese art of kintsukuroi. Kintsukuroi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. Once healed, our broken spots are what make us unique. I painted this as one canvas, and then I broke a piece of glass and puzzled it together again to have a pattern of broken glass, witch I then transferred to the canvas and cut it. I then glued the pieces together again on four new canvases, and covered the scars with gold.
