Painting: Enamel, Acrylic on Other.
Fifth painting in the Staircase series. The stair case is only ever used for it's practical purpose for slim portion of its existence, the rest of the time is a regimented sculpture standing boldly within its surroundings. A symbol of temporality and significance..
I start painting the staircase without to much thought to the final turn out, the surreal additions present themselves as ideas along the way, matching the essence and feel of the staircase.
This time bringing a touch of the inner city to a classical setting. When travelling through cities you can't fail to see the graffiti blanketing the walls. This gives me a sense that the walls are alive. The graffiti is evidence of people with ideas, opinions and creativity. Whether you like it or not. It's there and brings the walls to life. Painted in acrylic and enamel on linen.
