Painting: Watercolor and Household on Paper.
Abstract painting ready to hang, no framing required.
Kiosk is part of my new series named 'Esplanade'. For me this is the most important work in my career to date as it explores the intricacies of my own childhood growing up in an isolated coastal tourist destination. I've revisited the places I spent time as a teenager who liked to explore abandoned seaside fairs and locked up kiosks in the grey winter months. I've tried to bring the bright pastel coastal colours or graphic shapes sourced from the memories of fun rides, windbreaks and ice cream advertising together with the eery solitude of winter.
Watercolour and Ink collage on Waterford Saunders St Cuthbert's Mill watercolour paper
Set in a bespoke hardwood frame stained white
About the materials... I am very fond of paper, and it has become my primary canvas. I use the very best watercolour paper from St Cuthbert's mill, which is situated in the ancient Cathedral City of Wells in the southwest of England. St Cuthberts Mill has been making paper since the 1700's using one of the few remaining cylinder mould machines left in the world.
