This painting started off as landscape format but then never got finished. The canvas was then put on another wall, portrait format, and then waited there for a few years until the precise right moment to finish it. During the few years waiting period the wall was required for something else, so another canvas was stapled over it, a slightly smaller one so that it created nice edges, the edges always being the best bit.
It often doesn't take much time at all to finish a painting, however you do have to wait for exactly the right time.
Mediums include acrylic, ink, marker, imitation gold leaf, gesso, collage and spray paint.

“The words are a combination of an overheard or imagined narrative, my personal state of mind, the world around me, and all the things between that are hard to label.”
Self-taught artist Niki Hare’s word paintings are first and foremost about giving shape to emotions that can be hard to express in daily life. The work is highly personal, and even when, at times, the words are buried underneath one another, the important thing, according to the artist, is that they have been said. Hare’s unique use of color, transparency and layering is emblematic of her ambition to create a new visual language. The often vibrant works convey a sense of depth and movement, some words stand out, some fade to the back, creating a second narrative, that takes places in the interplay between the words, extending far beyond their individual meaning.
