Ashes to ashes

Ashes to ashes

I am trying to get away from whites, blues and neutral colours but sometimes they just seem to catch me nevertheless. I've had Ashes to Ashes by David Bowie in my mind for several days and it's funny, normally with my favourite songs I always have some sort of visual image of them but with this song I have no clear images in my mind. I've been making several small pieces inspired by the song, though, and this is one of them.

A human figure on the background is covered by a thin layer of gesso. Brads, ribbon and some letters to accentuate. I like the times when I am able to keep things relatively simple:)
