Flexion Quadrat

This painting was made on the surface of a glossy calender and although it hasn't quite worked, it has opened up some more pathways. It's reminiscent of an old map and the texture is like that of the skin of a baked potato.

The 'paint' is strawberry with salt, overlaid with patches of strawberry, salt and bicarbonate of soda. Pieces/slices of strawberry were also added, giving textural 'features'.

X marks the spot.


  1. What do you use to preserve the berry portion?

  2. Hello Alexis,

    The salt preserves the fruit, although I imagine the piece won't last beyond several years...
