Blemish 9 by Janna van Hasselt *What You Will*



Medium: gouache and pastel on paper
Size: 148 x 210mm

This series of gouache and pastel drawings was inspired by the intricate patterns and patinated surfaces of the Renaissance frescoes van Hasselt saw in the walled Italian hilltop town of Urbino. Here pattern, structure and repetition meet randomness and chance. With areas both opaque and transparent, it is difficult to tell what sits on the surface as camouflage and what lies beneath.
