Art Description

Painting: Oil on Cardboard.

matt texture
framed in white metal box frame
dimensions include frame

from a series of paintings 'mementos'.
The principal motif is two figures in an embrace. The paintings take as their starting point found vintage photographs of unknown couples. In a response to these images and the sensation that they suggest the paintings are developed to translate this feeling through an abstract language. The erasing of representational and character details, the language of the colour palette and mark making, the development of the compositional forms to re-contextualise the figures and their moment, are techniques employed to distill the sensation of the image whilst leaving the narrative open to interpretation.
