In my final term at Wimbledon, I experimented for the first time with gold leaf. I was far from being a complete stranger to this medium, having seen many of my peers use it on their canvases and wooden panels. I realized very quickly upon handling the gold leaf, just how thin and delicate it is, and manipulating it became a challenging task. However, I believe that the results were worth the wait. I mainly use pure 24ct gold leaf in my work, and it formed the basis of one of my most recent projects, Ungoldly Clergy. I wanted to use pure gold leaf as opposed to sheets which contain metal alloys, as it added to the irony and hypocrisy of the unethical subjects that were the focus of my work. I enjoyed using gold leaf and hope to employ it again in the future.
