These are the next porcelain paintings, which are part of my Destiny and Love theme"Falling to Pieces I" porcelain vase 28.5cm and "Falling to pieces II" porcelain oval plate.  I've quickly taken these photos with my phone, so the quality is not good...but it gives you the general idea of the paintings.  Gallery photos will be done later.

 

"Falling to Pieces I" Ingrid Lee 2012, porcelain vase 28.5cm

 

"Falling to Pieces II" Ingrid Lee 2012, porcelain plate 37cm

Both paintings reflect the same ideas, I just wanted to explore the painting across two pieces...rather like a diptych on canvas.  The deep multi-red/orange layers of lustre work suggest the shape of the heart (both sides on the vase) which is simply, falling to pieces.  I chose a flaming orange red colour for the central colour of the heart...the burning essentially which one feels as love breaks apart, but it still more than this.  The colours and feelings communicated through the effects created in many layers of lustre painting, was inspired by the surface of the sun....what better source for the representation of love- massive, burning solar flares and coronal loops all moving chaotically with huge explosions of energy.  It reflects what happens when we realise that something has happened to love, and for that moment, or many moments we do not cope, it is chaotic and energetic like the sun; and our heart falls apart.  This final process is shown by the interweaving line work of platinum through the swirling orange lustre, with accents of gold, that are falling into clear shapes, defining each part of our heart that falls.

 

 

 

 

The stage when love is ending still has parts which feel connected, as shown by the linked platinum and gold line work, but eventually, these feelings become isolated.  Again I use isolated, abstract line and shape work (discussed in another art work) to indicate the notion of love becoming finite.

      Thanks Di, the lustre colour Aurora was such a brilliant intense orange colour...more than regular orange lustre...I really enjoyed working with this new colour, and layering the other lustre colours.
