Abstract architectural painting, based on the City of London which has been photographed and the added into a series of layers of architectural images to create the drawing element of the work. The paint is based on abstracted shapes from negative spaces seen in the photography from London. These are abstracted then stencilled on with the colour applied using an airbrush. I try to get the viewer of the work to think about where they stand when they enter a new space, navigating and exploring their way around a new area.  The painting is aimed at enticing the viewer to explore the image, then come back for another view. 

This is produced on high quality linen, with 12 coats of stretch proof gesso and finished with a UV protected semi-gloss varnish.

Hooks included with the painting for wall mounting.

James Collins, Based in East Kent. All artwork for sale is available to view by appointment prior to purchase. To see the work in progress please see my YouTube page: https://youtube.com/@theartdepartment9286 We see architecture, geometry and shapes everyday. I want to explore the idea of adding architecture to a two-dimensional painting plane. I work with architectural sources, that may only be related by the architectural content. The idea of integrating unrelated elements is a focus of my work. I layer images of architectural imagery, which will only be related by the architectural content. I attempt within my practice to find relationships within the images by the way I layer them to integrate the unrelated elements. Currently my work is exploring the idea of a space within a space. I am not designing a space to paint, but trying to form intuitive spaces composed of nascent geometries and architectural compositions. By exploring the relationship between three-dimensional geometry and it's compression into two-dimensions and by playing with the illusionary potential of three-dimensional elements. I want the viewer of the work to look, and work out the relationships between the different geometry's. With the viewer potentially creating three-dimensional spaces in their mind as they study my paintings.
