The Mill

The GREATEST Little Art Show in E17. I agreed to take part in this fundraiser for The Mill E17. The brief: a blank postcard to create a miniature master piece. After considering the idea of a masterpiece, I recalled my favourites and researched others that perhaps aren't but which might make a good starting point. One painting which falls into the former category is The Snail by Henri Matisse, which I remember seeing at Tate Britain when I was very young. It left a big impression on me. I thought it might be nice to play around with scale and reverse the the idea of a very small creature being represented so large by representing a large animal on a small space i.e. the postcard.
