Memories of taking the overnight train to Delhi, playing cards, to pass the time.. for a long time I’ve wanted to use the motives from a pack of cards the club, spades and hearts , and when I started this piece of work using collage the shapes just evolved.
The medium used is collage, carborundum, silver leaf, and pure pigment sourced in India.

Maggie LaPorte Banks artist comments: My Art is routed in landscape, influenced by childhood memories of Donegal, by Lough Swilly, surrounded by dark mountains. I spent ten years living near to the Brecons Beacons and painting using a tent as a studio in all seasons. For over thirteen years I was an artist in residence in a cottage on the end of Cape Cornwall overlooking the Brisons at different times of the year. Therefore, I have a vast amount of passion for the skies, sea and mountains which I love to involve within my paintings. My recent works have been developed from these roots and are becoming much more abstract, focusing on ‘the essence of place’ through the colours I use and emotions I have created. I work mainly in oils, acrylic and mixed media, sometimes adding unique materials such as sand, carborundum, iron fillings and many other products I feel the work dictates.
