Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Other.

The ‘Black Swan Raw’ (BSR) continuing series stems from my studies of Mute Swan anatomy, the first was painted as part of the ‘Weight and Power’ project which originally started with the exploration of vast container ships. I travelled attempting to discover and photograph vessels in working docks though it was the images of the metal cities in states of decay, left dry and forgotten that appealed most. In awe of the scale and engineering, I attempted to capture their complex design and grandeur seen as metaphors for my understanding of power, this lead to the contemplation of the magnificent engineering in the structure a bird’s anatomy and specifically the phenomenology of a swan’s wing. The sensations I get when thinking about the ships were the same as when I consider the Swans. The series is painted roughly onto unprimed linen and is more like sketching with paint rather than painting.

In this the version I leave the sea and take to the sky with Swan placed on what could be see as a panel of an aeroplane.
