New Work. Abstract Paintings

Friday, May 17th, 2019

I use my work as a way to process whatever I’m seeing or thinking at the time. This can be purely self indulgent and personal, as well as sometimes, tapping into a broader or shared concern.

I like to let people bring their own thoughts to a piece. My work is the entry point, then people might be inclined to look harder and tease out other thoughts and connections to the work.

The life of an Abstract Painting.

Wednesday, February 27th, 2019

It’s amazing how many stages an abstract painting goes through. Ive had the beginnings of this painting sitting in the studio a few months now. Its only recently, I started to photograph the process of painting. Eventually I want to do time lapse video’s while working, but not sure yet, how I will set up my camera.

I wanted to dirty it up a bit

Added some black lines and spaces

The red slowly crept in

More drawing with oil pigments below and the circle was bothering me so I took a risk and blocked it out with red. And that’s what its all about. Taking risks, going along with whatever comes along and using your gut feeling.

I’m pretty happy with the results but will sit with it for a while, before I touch it or, leave it alone. It’s only afterwards, I’ll see connections and links to the context or meaning. Sometimes though this happens when doing, but mainly it’s a play with colour, line and space and knowing when it’s resolved.
