Dejavu painting by Zanny Mellor

Acrylic and graphite on board, 50x40cm, 2014

This painting drew influence from my interest in erosive processes in the Icelandic landscape as well as the action of focussing a camera lens. The soft subtle layering was built up slowly via adding and erasing paint repetitively. I wanted to achieve something that seemed present and absent at the same time and where the eye has to work to decipher the layering.
