What Lies Beneath

Sehila’s paintings are constructed layer by layer, often including her own collaged Gelli prints. By using transparent and translucent paints and glazes, earlier layers remain visible whilst being altered by the new colour.  This invites the viewer to consider which layer came first.

Sadly,  Sehila’s dog Treacle died during the making of three of the paintings and these paintings are dedicated to Treacle.  Sehila has included imagery referring to her eyes and tears within these paintings, as she often struggled to see through her own tears whilst painting.
