ELKYMY (Textural and painterly collaboration between London artists Andrea Papi and Daphne Ang)
‘Dvāpara (द्वापर)’ was created as part of ‘At The Worlds End’, a series of paintings comprising of telescopic views of the faces of different imaginary exoplanets, each set against a sea of blackness and the dark void of space.
‘Dvāpara’ was created during the height of the pandemic crisis of 2020 in the United Kingdom, where the artists are based. It provides a brief moment of interstellar escapism, reaching to the stars and galaxies for solace amidst these trying times here on our earth.
This work was executed using high quality professional grade materials and mediums from the Liquitex and Golden Acrylics Professional range. Done on Loxley Gold 3D canvasses with a depth of 1.3", making framing unnecessary. The works are also finished with archival standard sealant with UV protection (Golden Polymer Varnish), which gives a protective flexible dust-resistant surface. This varnish is removable with ammonia for restoration purposes if needed. A non-removable isolation coat was applied over the painting prior to varnishing, giving an extra layer of protection if/when the varnish is removed.
