Mrs Newburyport’s Sticky Toffee Cupcake With Salted Caramel Buttercream – In a continuing series of an ongoing relationship with the ordinary and everyday objects in our shared or isolated lives, I’m encouraging interaction with some of the objects that define me as an individual. These are the things that I might reach for in different times of my day yet do so automatically, without much thought. For example, ‘Maldon Sea Salt’ goes on pretty much everything I eat which, when given further analysis, acts in some way as my maintained and physical connection to Europe – the salt from the sea is an essential part of my physicality.
‘Mrs Newburyport’s Sticky Toffee Cupcake With Salted Caramel Buttercream’ – The year 2020 has been catastrophic for many reasons, not least of which has been the continued lockdown of the world due to SARS-CoV-2, also known as COVID-19 and The Novel Coronavirus. This has been the year where forced isolation and separation has caused immeasurable harm to billions of people yet within it, the human spirit continues to thrive as it took up the challenge of that isolation and decided to, well, bake. This is the 21stC update to the old classic cupcake. Enjoy.
This painting is four times larger than the first twenty paintings and also uses Old Holland oil paint as well as a synthetic polymer paint.
Artist quality oil and acrylic paint on museum quality stretched canvas, signed on the back. The painting also includes a unique numbered hologram certificate of authenticity.
In the next series I will be reaching out to others for their understanding and interpretation of what it is that drives their ordinary and everyday yet ordinarily goes unnoticed. This could be something as simple as a towel wrapped around the person after a shower where the towel acts as a psychological barrier to harm yet is only noticed as such when one questions its ‘other’ purpose.
