Acrylic and leaves collaged on MDF

60cm x 60cm


Acer Glade combines blue acrylic pours representing skies with collaged fallen acer leaves collected in Westonbirt in autumn 2021.

To create the pours, I layered different shades of fluid acrylic paint in a cup, and poured them onto the surface, before gently moving them around the surface to create the fluid pattern of light clouds moving across the sky. While the pours on the nine squares that combine to make this artwork are all similar, they are all slightly different, representing skies on a succession of different days under different weather conditions as time passes. The nine acer leaves have been dried and preserved in this collage, capturing them at a moment in time.

This painting is intended to highlight the beauty of these autumn leaves, collected after they had been dropped from the tree, no longer required as it moves in winter dormancy. Similar in shape to outstretched hands, these leaves, just nine of so many that fell from the trees, call out to demand our attention.
