tracery

These 3 paintings are unusually simple and delicate for me. They were made by transferring some paint, with marks I particularly liked, from canvas onto unprimed birch panels. The image was made by pressing creased tissue paper onto the canvas and then transferring the ‘print’ into the panel. I suppose they are mono prints of sorts.

I’m not sure how I will seal them, probably a coat of oil and cold wax medium when they are fully dry in a few weeks

graffiti and vandalism

I haven’t quite known how to share my recent works and talk about them here up till now. I’m having a bit of ‘breakdown’ perhaps. Not an illness. Just in painting terms. I am experimenting with pouring paint. Over older dry paintings. It’s hard to explain why. Or what it means. I hope this aggressive, bold use of strong colour, with forms forming themselves, directed by gravity and manipulated by the tilt of the canvas or a blot with tissue, will lead somewhere. In the meantime maybe they can say something for themselves.

On Facebook a friend commented that I am bringing graffiti and vandalism into the studio. Yes! I think the friend is right. Sometimes we need to force a change. To fight off the status quo.
