Painting: Oil, Acrylic, Charcoal on Canvas.
Oil, acrylic and charcoal painting on canvas.
My working practice acts as a visual diary of my thoughts and feelings often based on the past, but sometimes on something seen, music heard, places visited and my everyday experience and mood.
This painting and my current body of work explores my past and present experience of being a woman, as always with my painting, expressed through abstracted scape.
When painting, I am completely immersed in the process. I build a reverberating relationship with the canvas, a push and pull of chance and control. As much is taken away from the painting as is added, with constant building and washing of the canvas, aiming to invoke an atmosphere drawn from the process, the initial emotional trigger and the colour palette employed. I use palette knife, cloth, brush and sponge to add, remove, scratch, blur and work the paint, utilizing large amounts of water poured down the canvas, making it necessary to paint in wellingtons…..
The painting is signed on the canvas side and ready to hang.
