About the Piece
”I went back to the early 19th century and reflected that vintage in the central character, how one may have looked back then when preparing to take the plunge into the capitals river. The city buildings in the background are a mixture of old and modern and represent a tradition throughout the times. The colour layers are purposely offset embracing the screen print medium. The mermaid tattoo contains the initials R & K…a secret dedication to someone special.”
