‘Yes especially when you are in the boat…you will see that rain fall down especially when you are cruising … you feel that sting on your face it gets very very cold.” Rosella Namok
In this series of Stinging Rain, Rosella Namok uses various implements to scrape the painted surface. Stinging Rain - is part of a glowing work painted and this work is in a soft palette. In this work, rhythmic parallel lines paced obliquely to the vertical direction, take the moody narrative forward, their razorsharp gashes to the painted surface, created by a fine edged scraping tool. This work relates to fishing from a boat on the river during a downpour. ‘It’s always good when it starts to rain … it stings your face and stirs up the fish underneath.’
