Layers Of Duncrue

Fine Art Harland & Wolff Print

This square shaped study is full of the rich colour and kinetic energy that is typical of Una’s painterly style.


She draws parallels between the layering of Duncrue’s many factories and her own layering of thick buttery oil paint.


Delicate background detail contrasts with an array of industrial shapes, all fighting for the viewer’s attention.


Whether wide and linear or tall and wiry, they all hold space and add to that sense of buzz and hive of activity that is Duncrue.

The story behind...

Layers Of Duncrue

My aim is to allow the viewer’s eye to hop pleasingly over this depiction.

I’m careful not to ‘overwork’ and keep elements fresh and alive using swirls, scribbles, and fast mark-making. 

I intuitively layer on, scrape off, dilute down and build up again. 

Sometimes I ask gravity for help. 

Subtle drips and cool reflections pour and slide. 

I give composition much thought and allow the viewer’s eye to finally slow down – almost to saturation – along a lower row of barbed wire. 

I trust that a contemporary and colourful balance has been struck.
