'The Commitment to Blood'
Mixed media on photograph mounted on board.
Multi-layered and 7 years in the making. The painting/collage piece, with oils, acrylic, schlagg gold leaf, gunpowder, billboard poster and photograph eventually made this interpretation of the woman.
I wanted to make a painting, that's it. Just a beautiful painting with history! I wanted to spend time just looking and adding, and scraping away. I eventually came to this conclusion, and I couldn't go on any further.
AFTER FRAGONADE SWING I & II & OTHER PAINTINGS.
I started to make paintings using basic mark making. Using materials like lime plaster, gunpowder, oils, acrylic and ink. I wanted to create objects of art that have some connections to the history of art in some way. Taking elements from Fragonade's The Swing, I made this diptych to be as 'abstract' as I could make it. Just simply concentrating on using simple forms.
Making simple gestures and marks according to the environment I am in at the time, allows me to really open up and express my surroundings without the restrictions of trying to 'paint'. I am really just allowing myself to make these marks without much artistic input. Just relying on process and application to organically create objects of art.
