Layers of Life by Margo van Erkelens features a serene abstract face. The work begins with a cotton duck canvas base. Then, layer upon layer, van Erkelens builds up her pieces using a marble powder paste, a thick proprietary formulation. The warm, earthly colors meander across the canvas. Van Erkelens uses many mediums and techniques to create the texture of her works; she glues, smooths, heats, tears, breaks down, and builds up again, often without a predetermined plan. Margo works intuitively - the ultimate letting go - a pure experience of color and form. Only in the final, lighter layers does the canvas get a definitive representation.
