Gold vibes only – how I start working with the gold in art, which I create.
Hindu housewives hold 11% of world gold. This is more than the reserves of the USA, Switzerland, Germany and the International Monetary Fund have together – I don’t know if this is true, but I found that information when I was searching some info about my favorite metal.
Gold has always aroused great emotions. Gold was always a synonym of wealth, power, beauty and also a permanent and acceptable form of capital. Some people love gold, others hate it. However, it has always fascinated people and gold has been a hero of many stories since the dawn of time.
Aurophobia is supposedly fear of gold, but I am sure, that this is not my problem. I love gold in many ways. I like golden accessories in the interiors, gold jewelry, like an accent in fashion, and of course in art. In my first post, I mentioned traveled a lot in Asia.
As you know, the Chinese people love gold. I found gold almost everywhere in China. I felt inspired, and I returned home with the new idea of creating paintings with a golden color. Sometimes later I created “Touch of Gold” collection for Mint Grey ( luxury interior boutique in Warsaw). But before I found a satisfactory method and technique of putting gold, I made many tests and research.
My first golden painting was made at the beginning of 2015, but I wasn’t satisfied with the acrylic or oil effect of golden paint. So, I have started to experiment with a gold leaf, which, finally I covered the whole canvas and effect was amazing!
With a special application technique, I’ve got an interesting effect, which reminds me of frozen glass, a memory from my childhood, when the frost painted flowers in the windows of my house. Gold leaf has become a permanent element of my art. I’m happy that many people like that effect and it become popular, especially my pattern with golden birds.
Gold in fashion
In the first article, I mentioned that a few years ago I have tried to find myself in the fashion industry.
I created a brand of handmade handbags inspired by fashion & colors of Hong Kong. But I don’t continue this story anymore. Still, I have one of my favorites – golden clutch.
