Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

Large scale Geisha study on canvas in oils using a muted palette contrasting with areas of vibrant colour. Painted with a loose application of paint.

The visceral works utilize the human figure/head juxtaposed with abstract mark making. Achieved through the application of thick impasto paint, glazing, dragging and smudging the painting surface. Plus the occasional ‘happy accident’. All these elements contribute in the process of making or constructing a painting, or ‘how to paint’.

The paintings are representational, but intend to suggest rather than depict an accurate observation. This is more apparent as the viewer approaches the work. The painted surface dissolves into a seemingly unorganized arrangement of blotches and irregular textures.
