Wallmatter. New Paintings and more available in the Gallery.

Monday, December 5th, 2016

New Paintings, sculpture and more available in the Gallery   Some are already framed others are ready to hang with all hardware attached.   Shipping included in the price!

I am influenced by abandoned and derelict spaces, vacant industrial sites, structures, old walls & graffiti.  The paintings below are about the connections and contrasts of imperfections, found in the urban environment, highlighting, insignificant marks, weathered surfaces.

Small Abstract Oil Paintings. Still & Interruption.

Small Abstract Oil Paintings. Still & Interruption.

I spent a lot of time trying to get the surface just right, on these 3 paintings, as I wanted each piece to stand on its own, as well as, together as a whole. I also wanted to convey a feeling of stillness. A space to sit awhile.

The 3 below have colour and movement. I feel they are not yet resolved and will probably work back in with more layers.

I’m enjoying, the smaller scale paintings at the moment, especially after all the large ones I did over the past year for my “Wallmatter” exhibition.

Its a whole different way of working. Large paintings have huge sweeping strokes, where the whole body is involved. Smaller artworks allow me to come in close and are not so hard on my body. I can work longer on them, without too much pain to my back and neck.

Experimental Painting. Industrial Materials and Methods.

Experimental Painting. Industrial Materials and Methods.

Its been almost a year since I started this group of paintings using traditional, non traditional, industrial, materials and processes. There are 20 paintings altogether.

After several months of research and practical experiments, I finally discovered how to make my textural, gritty surfaces, stable and permanent for a flexible base.

Experimentation & New Free Tutorials Page.

My blog updates have been scarce lately, as, Ive been studying a couple of arts business and creative courses. This week I created a new “Free Tutorials”  page, where I share some of my favorite, creative ideas and things to do.

I’ve also, been experimenting with shellac and acrylic paints in the studio

After working on many creative projects and group exhibitions, here and overseas, the past couple of years

I really think it’s time, to get back into a gallery and start exhibiting again in 2016.

So, I’m looking for suitable spaces in Melbourne or Sydney, that aren’t too expensive.

My favourite thing to make, at  Free Tutorials  is my large studio easel. I created it when I built my studio in 2000. I wanted something big, so I could work on many paintings at once. It’s a bit slap happy, (I’m no carpenter) but, works perfectly for me.
