Art Description

Painting: Oil, wax and charcoal on Canvas.

This painting is part of a series which is based on memories from childhood. It is meant to evoke the fears and joys that are a part of everyones' early years. I hope that you feel that mixture of playfulness and a wish to hide. Oil paint applied to large surfaces allows long broad gestures which a physical in nature.I work at times with loose paint to allow drips to form. I also use brushes attached to dowels to further encourage a spontaneous gesture. Memory, especially childhood memory, is embedded in the physical/ the body. In working in such a active way with large gestures I attempt to capture that sensory memory.
