3D Acrylic Painting by Purple Faye

Canvas Size 16″x 20″ (406mmx508mm)
Image Depth 50mm
Acrylic on canvas, built up with cardboard and modroc

3D Acrylic painting made up of layers of cardboard, covered with modroc (plaster of paris in bandage) then painted with acrylic paint and varnished to help protect it.
Original, handmade, unique painting.

Made in August 2012

This was one of the first pet dog portraits that I made as a 3D Acrylic painting. I was struggling to decide what to buy my mum for her birthday so thought I would have a go at making 3D Acrylic Paintings of her 2 English Springer Spaniel dogs. (This is one of them the other is his sister Little Miss Summer)

Back then I enjoyed making things look less realistic and more quirky/cartoonish. That’s why it has big googly eyes. It also uses a lot more cardboard layers to make it stick out a lot.

No Kids Allowed

“No Kids Allowed”

Sweets on Hardboard by Purple Faye

Approx size 1m Diameter

Made in 2003

This was the final piece for my Foundation Degree in Art and Design, and was the main piece for my end of year exhibition at Selby College in 2003. It was the culmination of a number of pieces and explorations into incongruity and signage.

Made by sticking sweets to hardboard then mounted onto a wooden framework to support the weight of the sweets and allow it to be hung up. (Since making it I’ve put a plastic covering over the top to give it a bit of protection)

Rusty Plough Magazine Collage

“Rusty Plough”

Collage by Purple Faye

A1 Cartridge paper with sections from magazines stuck onto it

Made in August 2002  (approx)

This was made when I was at Selby Collage as part of my drawing development and material experimentation for the Foundation course in Art and Design (I think, it’s hard to remember exactly now).

I had to spend a while flicking through a stack of glossy magazines, collecting all the different colours and tones I needed, then cut them out and stick them on a piece of A1 to make up the picture.
